Overview

Let me tell your story!

As an experienced business communicator, blogger, and novelist, I'm uniquely equipped to provide clear, crisp, engaging content, be it original or a retool of material you already have! Because I'm a language student (and avowed grammar stickler), I can promise you literate, high-quality copy.

A firm believer in storytelling - stories being (in my opinion) the best way to engage and move your audience - I'll tell your story in language that is fresh and accessible. Although my writing style is completely...

Service Description

What can I do for you?

Write feature articles (on people, places, and/or things). I'm an experienced interviewer and researcher, ready and willing to work either collaboratively, or on my own. In my current position as communications specialist in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, I do stories like this on a routine basis, with over 200 written to date! Feedback has been extremely positive, and my articles are often co-opted for the university website, professional publications, and hometown newspapers.

Write blog posts that inform and educate, while engaging readers on a personal level - posts that will garner likes, favorites, and comments. I accomplish this and more on my own blog at http://leanmeanwritingmachine.wordpress.com.

Write a newsletter with information you provide, in language that will engage your target audience and accomplish your goals. I've produced internal newsletters for more than 10 years now, successfully cultivating both readership and third-party contributions.

Ghostwrite your book or article. As a novelist (both traditionally published and self-published), I can help you tell your story, make your point, educate your audience. I also have experience formatting and revising e-books.

Translate information you provide into a clear, concise instruction manual or a series of step-by-step instructions.

Edit your copy, for grammar and/or style. I've worked as a professional proofreader; I've edited articles...
