SWS offers technical, marketing, and web copy writing, as well as content development and editing services.
Schmidt Writing Services (SWS) began as Jennifer’s love of writing grew through college. During her undergraduate studies she served as an editor for a literary journal and as a news editor for the university newspaper. In addition, she served as a communications intern for Senator Robert Dutton during his 2012 congressional campaign and as a media and marketing intern for a local radio station.
After graduating with a B.A. in English and History at California Baptist University, she pursued a freelance writing career. While she had success contracting with PR companies, individual organizations, and bloggers, she sought more from her career. This led her to work in education where she was able to harness her writing skills to partner with the Orange County Department of Education and North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF) as a Curriculum Consultant to develop and write English Language Arts Curriculum. The curriculum Jennifer worked on received the 2021 SIIA CODiE Award.
Following her work in education, Jennifer’s professional career as an editor and technical writer began. She continues to work for a company contracted through the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). It is here that Jennifer has been able to hone her writing and editing skills. Her technical writing career has also taken off with her work with the DoD as well as with many of her freelance clients. She has since written technical white pages, manuals, user guides, operating manuals, and training scrips. She believes a writer’s strength is in their ability to continuously improve upon their craft and keep up to date with style changes and formatting.
Through the years, Jennifer has maintained a steady freelance writing, editing, and content development career with SWS. She has been published in numerous online publications in lifestyle, dating and relationships, as well as business and marketing. She has been named a Top 50 Writer in both Love, Self, and Relationships across Medium.com and has had several self-published pieces selected for curation by the website. In addition, Jennifer has ghost-written for numerous wine, whiskey, and fashion/lifestyle blogs. She has also contributed content for business and education websites.
Today, SWS focuses on technical, educational, and professional writing and editing. Jennifer provides curriculum consultation and writing, content development and writing, as well as additional editing services. Projects are contract-based and paid hourly unless otherwise negotiated. References can be provided upon request.
