copywriting, too

I not only edit, but also write web content, brochures, newsletters, programs, and advertisements — wit and personality included. I can be factual, I can be convincing, I can be funny, I can be lyrical. And my copy is always clean; that’s a benefit of hiring a dual writer/editor. Bribe me and I’ll do simple layout, too.
