Hello there and welcome to my online portfolio and blog!

I’m Kelly J. McGuire, a freelance writer, editor, and part-time translator hailing from the tiny nation of Gibraltar and residing in the Netherlands since 2006. On this site you will find details about my professional background, learn more about my areas of interest and expertise, and find samples of my work.

In my spare time, I run the East Asia-focused blog, Eye on East Asia, which is aimed at Anglophone readers who are relatively new to the multidisciplinary field of East Asian Studies or are mildly curious about the languages, cultures, and history of the region.

If you would like to hire me to write an article for your magazine, website, or blog, please visit my business website, Kestrel Text & Translation, to enquire about my rates and conditions. All queries will be dealt with within 48 hours.
