Summary of Experience
In college Victoria began honing her skills as a writer through her major in History which taught her how to debate and defend a view or idea, efficiently research topics, and form coherent points that she could confidently articulate.

After college she began an internship where she would spend the next two years sharpening her skills as a journalistic writer and finding her writing voice. Rather than writing long, detailed papers arguing a specific point on a given topic, she learned to consolidate the information she was trying to convey and her own opinion into two or three paragraphs, while still getting her point across.

Moving on from her internship, she spent some time learning the structures of social media and how to write for and present content through outlets such as Facebook. At the same time she maintained a blog for her employer and learned how to tie shorter social media posts to longer, more in-depth blog posts. She also helped with internal editing and proofing for her company, refining her skills with grammar.

She currently spends her free time writing fictional short stories and assisting friends and family with any writing related issues they may come across.

Projects By Expertise
Journalist

Victoria wrote for an online gaming magazine for two years and covered topics across all platforms and most genres. Her stories covered basic news, surveys, opinion pieces, and reviews. She wrote both longer pieces with weeks-long deadlines, as well as short news blurbs that took one to two hours. She is able, based on prior training, to provide well-researched, critical pieces, short, punchy articles aimed solely at delivering basic news coverage, and stories aimed at grabbing the reader and encouraging discussion.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

Victoria's work in video game journalism helped her to develop her own writing voice, and encouraged a conversational tone. When she wrote in this style she was encouraged not to talk at readers, but to encourage a dialogue with them. Her tone could be as enthusiastic or apathetic as she felt, but the goal was always engaging with readers, not simply presenting information or facts, but asking for reader opinions, either outright or by presenting her own.
