Writing & Editing

I write material from scratch and do substantive editing, copyediting, and proofreading. Here is the type of material I develop:

  • Web content
  • Social media content, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn
  • Journalistic blog posts and articles
  • Marketing material, including ads for print and web
  • Email marketing letters
  • Media kits, including news releases
  • Newsletters and e-newsletters
  • Radio scripts
  • Talking points for spokespeople
  • Presentations
  • Training guides
  • Instructional guides
  • Style guides

Communications Planning and Project Management

I am a doer. So I create a plan, then execute it, making adjustments along the way to keep it rooted in reality. The planning and execution includes:

  • Identifying stakeholders
  • Gathering requirements
  • Assessing stakeholder needs
  • Setting strategic goals for the project
  • Developing key messages, defining audiences, and setting measurable targets
  • Identifying media to use in project (web, social, print, radio, etc.)
  • Planning key tasks, assigning resources, and establishing timelines
  • Implementing the project
  • Assessing the project on completion
  • Consolidating lessons learned with project team
  • Managing people, such as editorial teams and other content creators
  • Liaising with vendors, such as web developers, graphic designers, and printers

Mentoring

Collaborative by nature, I offer mentoring to individual writers, wherever you are on your writing journey. You might have a story, and not know where to start. Or you might have started with an idea, but now it’s a muddle and you don’t see a clear way out or through. Whatever your writing goal, whether it’s to finish an essay, short story, or longer manuscript, or delve into character, conflict, action, or story arc, I can offer assistance on your path.
