Want to get it out? Get It Write!

Do you need readable, interesting and understandable writing?

Are you looking for content for employee and association e-newsletters, feature articles, case studies, websites, social media posts and other material?

Do you sometimes have complicated, jargony, dense information that you want turned into appealing content?

That’s the heart of what I do.

Many of my clients are time-starved corporate communicators who appreciate a fresh perspective on a routine subject, or a helping hand to meet production deadlines. I simplify the complex, uncover “what’s in it for me?” and find the human angle in just about any story.

As a writer with 25 years’ experience, I can handle complicated or sensitive topics as well as breathe new life into recurring items. I care as much as you do about reaching people with clear, readable copy that’s warm and friendly.

Before + after: Google terms of service

Oh, my poor eyes and brain. When I logged into my analytics last week, Google asked me to agree to new “Google Measurement Controller-Controller Data Protection Terms.” Like you, probably, I usually just click on “agree.” This time, I copied, saved and read the terms....
