Service Description

As a former features writer for a daily local newspaper (circulation 50,000) I have written more than two hundred articles and sidebars with content covering lifestyle profiles and community events, home decorating, senior issues, and family-oriented articles. I attribute my success as a newspaper reporter in part to my ability to formulate strong interview questions and gather effective research to support content when necessary.

I have strong background as a grant writer that includes having been Senior Writer for Advancement at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. I have written numerous compelling and winning grant proposals to corporate and family foundations as well as government agencies (National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities) on behalf of several non-profits in New York and California.

My educational background includes an MA in Museum Studies with a concentration in the conservation of historic costume and textiles. If you have writing requirements that involve taking highly technical information (chemistry, physics, and neuroscience) and finessing it into straightforward and engaging language, I can be of assistance to you.

I look forward to helping you with all your writing needs from generating fresh content to editing and proofreading.

Sincerely,

Anne Marie Mills
