Words on Your Mind?

Some people search for a freelance copywriter because they find copywriting about as much fun as cleaning their entire car with a toothbrush: they can’t stand searching for the right words to convey exactly what they mean. For others, the frustration comes from a greater force: the seismic social shifts taking place in society today. What can you say? What can’t you say? Editing suffers from the same laments.

For me, burying myself in words is like lying out on a warm summer’s day, under a shady tree.

Whether the words you want need to convey an exciting sale or discuss a sensitive topic, I’d love to help.

I’m a Freelance Copywriter, Editor, and Translator Who Can Help

Hi! My name’s Lori Straus. I’m a freelance copywriter, editor, author, and German-to-English translator. I write about technology, the humanities, social sciences, and the arts and write for clients in Canada, the U.S., and Germany.

My portfolio is broad and includes blog posts, website copy, magazine articles, marketing collateral, and more. Topics? My love of the arts, social sciences, and technology has helped me write about a range of topics: from ZZ Top to SAP translation to cars to children living with lifelong diseases and disorders.

And there’s of course a lot in between. As a freelancer, I pride myself on my flexibility, so if you’re looking for freelance help but need someone who can change as your company changes, that’s me. On the other hand, if you have one specific type of content you’d like written every month, I can do that, too.

So, how can I help you? Different clients have different needs, so I’ve separated my offerings to help you find the most relevant information quickly. Click on the button that best matches you and learn more about how I can help turn your days from drudgery into luxury again.
