Among the writing, editing, design, training/coaching or consulting services I can provide are:
- Writing. I am an award-winning non-fiction writer and journalist. I can provide short press releases to long-form pieces for presentation on both the web and in ink on crushed, dead trees. I spent a number of years as a daily journalist, and I published news, features and columns on a regular basis. Your deadlines are always met, whether they are set in two months or two days,
- Editing. Ah-h-h. The art of the Second Look. Can I edit as well? Yes! The skills are different from writing, and I must admit, it is unusual for one person to have both. I have edited advertising copy, press releases, news stories, and magazine feature stories. These projects have ranged from basic copyediting to substantive editing. Editing and proofreading are similar, and I can do both. On deadline.
- Design. Starting in the mid-1980s, I began my career as a writer, speaker and consultant focusing on design in print and on the web. I have made presentations to national and international audiences from The Poynter Institute to the American Press Institute. Now I re-charge my laptop, wear my green eyeshade, and don my all-black outfits and Warby Parker specs in Atlanta, after many years in Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine, FL. Let me know if you need help with advertising design to publication design to corporate identification (logos, letterhead and business cards).
