I write for a variety of business, non-profit and individual clients at all stages of writing, video and multimedia projects. I help clients with strategy, research, analysis and finally writing about what it is they want to say. Or I can join a project at the end for a final edit of a finished text. My goal is always the same, to help clients tell a nuanced story with clarity, depth and purpose.
I am available to write articles, newsletters, annual reports, research reports, grant applications, web content and scripts. I also edit books and articles and work as a ghostwriter. And I am available to manage writing and multimedia projects.
My clients include:
Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem, a local foundation that supports women, retained me to write, “A Second Look, Through the Gender Lens: The Economic Condition of Women in Forsyth County,” which examines women and poverty in Forsyth County through stories and data.
