Service Description

Are you a business owner looking to publish an oped in a trade publication? A nonprofit professional trying to meet a grant deadline? A public relations consultant making final edits to a press release? I can help. I have written and published dozens of articles and press releases, edited both popular magazines and academic journals, and developed and managed websites. I can research and write convincingly on most topics and adapt my prose to fit the setting and audience. As a former journalist and editor, I also appreciate what publications are looking for in a submission and how best to match a work’s tone with its intended audience.
