About

Joseph VanBuren, freelance writer
My passion is to use my love of language and obsession with details to tell stories that are clear, correct, and compelling.

I am a detail-obsessed word nerd and multimedia storyteller who loves helping other people turn good writing into great content. Clients I have worked with include Grammarly, Purdue University, American Red Cross, Horror Writers Association, ShopGoodwill.com, as well as many indie authors and small businesses.

Feel free to check out the testimonials on my home page and my Upwork profile where I’ve earned Top-Rated status with a 100% Job Success score.

In this mind-boggling post-truth era we live in, I imagine a world in which people hold information, communication, and thought to a higher standard; in which people from all walks of life have access and contribute to the vast and ever-growing expanse of human knowledge; and in which creativity is valued as much as profitability.

I am doing my part to bring about this world by building a business that encourages storytelling, creativity, critical thinking, literacy, empathy, and ethical communication.

It is no exaggeration to say that this is my passion and not just a profession. I read the Chicago Manual of Style in my free time. I eat checklists for breakfast, style guides for lunch, and final revisions for dinner.

In addition to working with the awesome companies mentioned above, I have been a music artist for most of my life and a published author since 2016. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in writing and a minor in psychology. I am a member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers), ACES (American Copy Editors Society), the Horror Writers Association, and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association.
