Storytelling for businesses

You need to send a message to your client to increase sales. What is that message going to be and how will you tell your story?


Writing a blog is a different animal than formal writing. Your voice needs to be unique so you don't get lost in the noise.

Editing & Proofreading

People notice grammar and spelling errors. Easy mistakes can cost you a lot. Imagine what big mistakes can cost.

Formal Writing

Books, reviews, journals, auto-biographies - formal writing means citation and education. Make sure you have both.
