Writer For Hire

I write stuff. Lots of stuff. I would like to write for you.

My writing gigs cover the gamut: press releases, web copy, artist bios, articles, newsletters, fact sheets, blogs, backgrounders and more. I’m handy with social media. I’m also pretty good with ransom notes and Dear John (or Jane) letters. I love making noise about the local jazz scene. Many of my freelance clients are fellow musicians, as well as various jazz entities. However, I am able to write for a broad range of audiences, situations and industries. Try me.

I have been honing my writing chops for over three decades.  As far as credentials go, I have a BA in English from the University of Iowa and a certificate in Public Relations from the University of Washington Continuing Education program. AP writing style? I’ve got it covered.

In my humble opinion, stories are everything. They provide the details, colors, shapes and emotions that make the picture complete. Be it an amazing service, an out-of-this-world product or a rock ‘em, sock ‘em business that you’re pitching, it is the story behind it – your story– that seals the deal. I would be honored to help you tell it.

If you are interested in my services, please give me a shout.  To take a peek at some of my writing samples, go here.  References are available on request.
