I have ten years of experience as a marketing and publicity writer, working with clients ranging from consumer product and pharmaceutical companies to non-profits and government entities. I have written three novels and innumerable personal essays. My non-fiction writing has appeared in Forbes.com, Teen Identity Magazine and VolunTourism.org. I am a veteran mentor with the non-profit Girls Write Now.
Corporate Marketing and Publicity Writing
I write press materials, marketing and sales collateral, executive biographies, corporate histories, television and radio spots, web content, and more for a wide range of clients. View my portfolio.
One-on-One Writing Coaching
I can help you achieve your writing goals. I edit, offer counsel, and provide feedback to writers of all stripes. Working together we can:
- Improve your writing. I can help you develop your voice, ensure you are getting your message across, and make sure your intended audience connects with your words.
- Get published. With extensive experience crafting pitches and writing in a journalistic capacity, I can help you evaluate the markets where you’d like to see your writing land, get in touch with the right people, and create compelling query letters and pieces that will get you the coverage you desire.
- Tell your story. If you don’t tell your story, who will? I can help you focus your narrative, edit your manuscript and provide counsel and coaching through the memoir-writing process. I am also a ghostwriter.
- Maintain a positive perspective. I will help you confront the challenges associated with living a writer’s life to use them to inspire you and push you forward.
