About Me

I am Marissa N. Uycoco-Bacsa. I used to be a registered medical technologist and nurse before becoming a creative writer. I help various clients here and abroad with their #WebContent and other #writing needs. In between assignments, I still find time to write my own #blog and #novels.

Your words matter and I could help you make your message across on any media.
Learn from my journey as I blog about #writing, #freelancing, and #productivity.

Benjamin Franklin once said, "If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing." I decided to do both.

 

Services

There are businesses and individuals who are in need of writers — start-ups, web developers, small businesses, busy entrepreneurs, agencies, etc. Save your time and money. Get more results with the professional writing services I can offer. Who knows? I could be the right person for the job.

My goal is to produce high-quality web content that engages readers, relative to your target market and delivers value to the public.

I could easily adapt to your preferred writing style and approach. Usually, I write in a formal, conversational, storytelling tone. You may check out my blog for writing samples.

My Quality Assurance

I treat any writing assignment as my own. I will not stop writing until I get satisfied. My educational background, my work experiences, and my love of writing have given me the advantage to write diverse topics in different formats.

I am a writer. I am an artist. I always treat a project like a work of art. Doing good is my religion, thus helping people has become my second skin. I am willing to go an extra mile for my clients, because doing so is one of the keys to success.

The only really committed artist is he who, without refusing to take part in the combat, at least refuses to join the regular armies and remains a freelancer.
