My task which I am trying to achieve is by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel–it is, before all, to make you see. That–and no more, and it is everything.”      –Joseph Conrad

My name is Marcela Kogan and I’m a freelance writer. Welcome to my website.

Clear, well crafted, writing filled with rich imagery and compelling details sparks readers’ imagination and stimulates their curiosity.

I believe in the power of words in changing people’s perceptions and improving their lives.

This belief guides my thinking in every freelance writing project assigned to me by publishers, corporate clients and government agencies.

I love to write and can learn to love anything I write about.

I write magazine articles, industry newsletters, marketing pieces, newspaper features, essays, conference reports and books. I’ve written about ways to improve your marriage, to beat the blues, to make small talk and to deal with difficult bosses. I’ve also written about the business of corporate relocation, regulations governing coal transportation and the need to preserve affordable housing.

The subjects I write about vary. But I approach all assignments the same way–with enthusiasm, curiosity and desire to get a message across.

How do you know if I’m right for the job? Tell me what you need and I’ll tell you if I can do it. Then I’ll tell you how I’ll do it.

What do I have to offer?  Look at my website, click on some writing samples.

Then sit back and ask yourself: Is this the kind of person I want to hire?
