Service Description

With my background as an award winning English major, a writer for an environmental nonprofit, and a widely-read blogger, I can offer a mixture of ingenuity and in-depth knowledge of writing conventions that allows me to tackle a wide range of projects.

My professional experience includes 9 months of employment with Wilderness Workshop developing public support for wilderness legislation in Colorado. I wrote press releases for a wide range of Colorado publications, I helped create and edit in-house publications designed to inform and persuade the general public, and wrote and maintained large sections of our website. I also wrote ad copy and helped develop and proofread our official policy proposals, which were given to county commissioners, U.S. representatives, and U.S. senators.

While still in college, I was employed by Whitworth University as a writing consultant, which involved aiding students in their writing at all stages of the process. I gained expertise in generating ideas, organizing content, perfecting mechanics, and using correct academic style during my training and work as a consultant.

Also at Whitworth University as head fiction editor of the literary magazine Script, I sharpened my eye for good writing and further improved my proofreading skills.

My most recent writing project, found at www.hitchhikingtobolivia.blogspot.com, shows my ability to craft compelling narratives, convey pertinent information, and investigate current political and...
