Why "The Write Angle"? Because when it comes to quality writing, the right angle makes a difference!
I excel at helping others articulate their thoughts and ideas through the written word. You provide the base knowledge--including keywords and phrases for SEO purposes--and I will help you turn that information into reader-friendly, highly effective communications.
I will work hard to help you get the results you desire, and I will work equally hard to ensure you are delighted with my efforts and output along the way.
Offering More Than 25 Years of Diverse Writing Experience
I first started writing professionally in 1985 as an organizational communications major in college, developing feature articles for the Dayton Daily News. After securing an MBA and working for five years at NCR, I began providing copywriting and editing services to companies in the Dayton area. I have written business communications for print and electronic media, including ads, brochures, newsletters, press releases, training materials, direct mail pieces, and content for websites and intranet sites.
In 2012, prior to joining Elance, I helped launched a new business by creating job descriptions, membership contracts, contractor agreements, software user instructions, and marketing materials, including press releases and brochures. I also write pro bono for several local organizations, as I feel it's important to give back to the communities in which we live.
I completed my first Elance job in November of 2012 and have enjoyed working with a number of new clients. A fan of diversity, I look forward to helping you with a variety of writing projects.
