I think writing's main job is to make people feel. No matter the context, if the reader isn't feeling anything, the writing isn't successful. Voice is one of my strongest talents, and I have honed my skills in manuscript editing through years of participation in critique groups.
In addition to being a creative writer, I am a trained librarian and have worked in marketing at a scholarly press. What does this mean for you? I know how to evoke feeling and organize information--and I am not afraid of research. I have taught college-level courses in creative writing, information literary, composition, literature, and liberal studies. I have worked in marketing at a university press, where I wrote jacket copy, proofread catalogs, and handled our social media accounts. As a freelancer, I have written everything from magazine articles to business blog posts to educational content for use in alternative settings.
I am currently available for business communications work as well as creative manuscript consultations. I can help you create engaging content or find your own voice.
