Will Rice

Content Strategist, Copywriter, Ghostwriter, Writer

Experienced writer for technology, media, and marketing

I would love to chance to help your organization through professional writing services.

I am a full-time freelance writer and the author of two blogs focused on technology, strategy, innovation, and social media. I also ghostwrite for clients around the world.

My specialty is content that makes complex concepts understandable to the average consumer. I can write from my own knowledge base on topics such as websites, social media, podcasting, and digital strategy. I am also gifted in quickly researching and processing new information so I can write about nearly any topic.

I do all my writing in Grammarly. The software double checks my grammar, spelling, and word use. It even checks for accidental plagiarism. All of my writing also goes through one final check by a real human to weed out any errors.

Here some info about me:

I have a bachelor's degree in communications and a master's in theology. I also have 25+ years of communications experience. I live in San Antonio, Texas with my wife, two kids, three rescue dogs, and a box tortoise.
