I’m a Chicago freelance writer with extensive experience with nonprofits and businesses large and small, as well as a nice chunk of journalism clips. I have a degree in English from the University of Michigan – Flint, I’m a produced playwright, and I’ve never met a book I wouldn’t skim.
Am I the writer for you? Let’s see…
- I’m a Dramatic Storyteller
I will find the human story in your project. Even if you think your project is about lug nuts, I will prove to you that it’s really about humans, and tell that story in a way your audience connects to and remembers.
- An Outside Eye That Sees the Gaps
You know your mission, and the ins and outs of your organization. I specialize in looking at communications projects from the outside–as the prospective audience. I see what you’re not saying as much as what you are, ask relevant questions, and pinpoint where you’re not telling your story the way you want to.
- So Little Ego
Don’t get me wrong, I’m proud of what I do. I wouldn’t offer my services for hire if I thought I was a terrible writer. But in the end, my name isn’t usually on the final project–yours is. All of my project quotes automatically include two rounds of revisions, and I’m a good listener from the get-go. I want you to be thrilled with your communication projects, so it’s not going to hurt my feelings if you want some changes.
So if you’re looking for a writer who finds stories, fills in the gaps, and is absolutely devoted to making you really happy with your projects, we’re probably a good fit. If you’re looking for a writer with all these qualities who’s also professional, deadline-focused, and can turn a piece around quickly, then you should probably send me an email.
