Need a creative and deadline-driven writer & editor?
Whether it's feature articles, cover stories, website copy, blogging, or digital content creation, my passion for writing and storytelling is adaptable and diverse.
Dakota Parks is a freelance writer and poet. She holds a Master of Arts in English with a specialization in creative writing from the University of West Florida. In 2020, she helped revive, Feminist Spaces, an international journal of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies, and she currently serves on the board of directors for Sunday’s Child, a philanthropic LGBTQ-focused nonprofit. Recently, her poetry appeared in Someone Waits for Me, a queer documentary on aging screening at film festivals across the nation, Emerald Coast Review, The Pensacola Museum of Art, and Sinister Wisdom (forthcoming). She currently resides in Pensacola, FL in an RV-turned-tiny-home with her attack cat and personal library on wheels.
Do you have a dream to publish that dusty manuscript on the shelf— or hidden in your computer files? Whether it's a poetry chapbook, book chapter, manuscript, or creative commission, I can help direct your project, suggesting an editorial timeline, feedback, and revisions to keep your creative project rolling.
My passion for storytelling, creative problem solving, and research sleuthing makes me an ideal candidate for a wide variety of freelance writing projects including: article writing, cover features, profile stories, brand messaging, company bios, social media campaigns, and more.
As a deadline-driven copywriter, I use the rhetorical power of words to increase engagement on social media and drive visitors to your website through carefully crafted web copy, blog writing, and digital content creation. Additionally, I also offer full website packages which include website design, layout, and copy for 6-8 website pages.
Whether it's an extra set of eyes on marketing
collateral, brand messaging, publication design, magazine proofs, or proofing white papers, my editing experience is diverse and adaptable to suit a wide variety of client needs.
"Dakota was very highly recommended to me by both colleagues and mentors in the community, and she absolutely delivered a product that will long be remembered for its sincerity, truth, and rhetorical strength. Dakota was an asset to the project, easy to work with, and I hope our paths cross again!"
