Publications that connect with critical audiences

Whether you’re producing them in print or online, if your publications fail to connect with your critical audiences, your investment is being wasted. I’ll help you transform lackluster e-newsletters, customer magazines, print newsletters, and other publications into powerfully effective communications tools. I have extensive experience as a writer for newsletters, magazines and other publications, and know how to make yours match your expectations. I can repurpose existing content for your online and print publications, and ensure that your organization speaks with a single voice. Plus, I can even help you manage the process to ensure that you meet deadlines.

It served that role until its closing in 1965.
