I write and develop content for mission-driven organizations that are making a difference in our region and our world. There are many ways to tell your story – I can help.
My work for higher education and nonprofit clients ranges from collateral materials and fundraising campaigns to magazine articles, website content, case statements, and profiles. Recently I have been engaged in writing case-for-support materials for a range of clients including Saint Joseph’s College, the University of Southern Maine, Monhegan Museum of Art & History, and Friends of the Eastern Prom.
STORIES. I write and edit stories and profiles for college magazines and other publications. A good story can serve many purposes, one of which is to inspire friends and reengage alumni to support your mission.
This fall 2017 story about a new course in entrepreneurship at Saint Joseph’s College in Standish, Maine, is one of many I have written for Saint Joseph’s College Magazine.
CONTENT DEVELOPMENT. Web landing pages, brochures, digital ad campaigns…all of these require carefully conceived messaging and effective copy. As part of a team working on the launch of a new website for Iona College in New Rochelle, NY, I created content for all of the primary pages, with copy designed to align with their new theme, “Move the World.” This is one of many website projects I have worked on for colleges and universities from Maine to Florida.
“Every great park needs good Friends” is the underlying theme of a case for support I wrote for Friends of the Eastern Promenade, advocates for Portland’s signature park.
PROFILES. Sometimes the best way to tell your story is to let others tell it for you. I have extensive experience interviewing and crafting stakeholder profiles – donors, faculty, alumni, students, and others – for use in promotional campaigns, recruitment, development, and brand advertising.
