Here we are. You and me. (That’s me down there.)
For whatever reason, you need words. Maybe you don’t have time to write them, or perhaps you just don’t want to. Either way, I’m your lady.
I’d like you to meet my friends, Curtain and Pen.
Don’t let that Theatre degree scare you.
I promise I won’t answer your questions with quotes from Shakespeare, and I won’t spend our entire conversations speaking in a fake British accent. Theatre requires the ability to take the words and ideas of another and present them to the masses. In order to do it successfully, you need to know how to appeal to emotions, personality types, and target audiences… in the most authentic and genuine way possible. My education in Theatre has provided me with the experience and ability to do just that.
Portraying a character onstage is far more than simply waving your arms about and shouting, “Wherefore art thou?” You must research the character and delve deeply into their history, whether that information is provided to you in the script or not. I approach my clients in the same way. I learn as much as I can about the person or company, so that I can represent their brand and personality in an accurate and aesthetically pleasing way.
I love words.
I love them in old books, computer screens, and conversations. It pains me to see them handled badly, and I strive to keep their dignities intact when I, myself, handle them. I have a degree in English, which does not mean I run around hitting people with rulers for saying “ain’t.” It means I have an appreciation for the impact words can create, and the knowledge to make that impact work in your favor.
If you’re going to learn how to write, then you’ve got to read. I’ve worked hard to submerge myself in many styles of composition… from literary criticism to playwriting. This experience allows me to accurately adapt to whichever tone or writing style is needed by my clients, and to work with them to make the content feel as authentic as possible.
I have a BA in English and Theatre, 7-12 High School Education. I spent five years at the University of Nebraska at Kearney writing, reading, researching, discussing, memorizing, and acting. Creative Writing, along with Victorian and British Literature took up most of my English time, while acting and directing had my focus over on the Theatrical side of things.
In 2010, I established my freelance writing business, focusing mainly on online content creation, with a little social media management thrown in for certain clients. I’ve been feverishly (maybe not that feverishly…low-grade feverishly… think “urgent care” not “ER”) writing newsletters, blog posts, social media posts, and website content ever since.
Have questions? I've got a handy contact form waiting for you just a few lines down.
Or, we can grab coffee… in real life or via the screen-talking option on your favorite form of technology. Whatever works.
The sooner we get to work, the sooner we can find the words that will work for you.
