Service Description

Although writing and editing have not always been my primary occupation they have always figured prominently in whatever I was doing. I am a trained photojournalist and a former newspaper editor. I've been a trainer and an education director.

NO NEED FOR A LOT OF HAND HOLDING

My work and life experience spans education, public relations, journalism, architecture, construction, business and marketing. Having performed in roles from intern to executive level, and in both government and the private sector, I have a deep understanding of organizations. I also have excellent communications skills and a penchant for life-long learning.

CLEAR EXPECTATIONS AND PROJECT REQUIREMENTS ARE APPRECIATED.

During the past seven years I have published more than 80 magazine articles in the trade press; written copy for companies in the food, financial and print industries; written and edited more than 300 business communications items including press releases, newsletters, business sales letters, website copy and promotional pieces; developed content for an online software consulting group, and written a few hundred topical web pieces.

I MEET THE DEADLINES.

I've completed a technical manual, have written more than 1,200 blog posts, developed and broadcast 30 podcasts, many with interviews, and written most of the copy for a corporate social responsibility brochure.

I am looking for opportunities to write and/or edit for businesses, trade magazines, newspapers, and others that need...
