This site does not look like much because it is not supposed to. It is all about my showcase of the written word.
My name is Jeff Westover. I am a freelance writer and web developer based in Utah.
I’m no kid. I have been writing for online publications since 1990 and producing web sites since the mid-1990s. Yes, that makes me an Internet pioneer.
What you will find here are various samples of my writing. These are all real-life projects, not some souped-up, made-up content intended to just sell my skills. This is stuff that has already sold and have provided me with income.
Let’s talk about that, shall we?
I cannot stand the term “freelance”, mostly due to the emphasis on the word “free”. Some people only see the “free” part of freelance. Over the years I have seen a continual decline in creative compensation as more and more publications opt to give work to non-English speaking writers of no practical experience. If that is you, see ya later.
I am a professional. I like to eat. In fact, I admit it, I’m addicted to food and so is my family. We need money in order to obtain it.
So if you are here for something free please be prepared to sell me, and not the other way around. (Disclosure: In all seriousness, I actually work on several charitable causes a year with my talents.)
When I write, I put not only my skills for wordsmithing into play I also bring my decades of life experience as a business executive, a father, a husband, a citizen, a rabid baseball fan, a history geek, an employee and an employer, and everything I possess in outstanding research skills to the table. I bake from scratch, so to speak. I write the old fashioned way. I provide what readers want to consume.
Please review my little showcase here and let me know how I might be able to help you.
If my cost is your first concern, I will gladly be forthright in communicating my needs. Please tell me about your project, your timeline and your expecations by contacting me via this link.
