What follows is just a small selection of examples of types of writing people and businesses hire writers for.
Publishers of newspapers and magazines know that their circulation and advertising revenue depend upon providing readers with engaging, exciting content that will keep them coming back for more. I can provide that content no matter what the topic. My background in education means that I’m experienced in conveying information in a concise, well-organized and interesting manner, that I am a capable researcher, and that my thirst for learning about anything and everything is unquenchable. I can also provide your magazine or publication with editing services and proof the final product before it goes to press.
Publishers aren’t the only ones who require content. As an expert in your field, you can greatly increase your exposure, boost your reputation, and open yourself to all sorts of PR and funding opportunities by publishing in trade and professional journals. If you have something to say, but aren’t sure how to say it, you can rely on me to help you get your message out.
Copywriting and Publicity
As a business owner, you understand that your printed advertising and promotional material (including your website) is often the only information a potential customer has at their disposal when making the decision whether or not to request a quote or more information about your product or service. Isn’t it in the best interest of your business, then, to make sure that such copy is as polished, professional and free from errors as possible?
If you’re an author or an expert and need someone to write your biography, jacket material, press releases, promotional copy or feature article, I can help.
Newsletters, Company Histories and other Corporate Services
Whether you need news and other information disseminated on a regular basis to the employees of your company, a comprehensive company history for the 25th anniversary celebration or biographies of each employee written for the company website, you need a professional writer. Email me with a description of your project or needs.

Presentations and Speeches
Do you have to give a presentation or a speech, but aren’t sure that what you have in mind will come across clearly to your audience? As a former educator, I have given presentations and made speeches before an incredible variety of audiences on just as many different topics. I have also helped countless others plan, organize and deliver their own presentations. I can consult with you on all aspects of your presentation or speech: identifying your audience’s interests, focusing the content of your speech, using visuals effectively, even strategies to calm and focus yourself before the appearance. Count on me to help you deliver a stellar speech or presentation.
