Do you have a success story to tell? Readers — whether they be news subscribers, employees, clients or members — are hungry to learn how someone made it. Here’s a piece I did a bit over a year ago for Above, RE/MAX’s magazine for its real estate agents. In this story, listing agent Cecilia DeFreitas (not the woman seen jumping for joy in this stock photo) shares tips on selling luxury homes. Whatever your endeavor, what success tips do you or your team have to share?
I’ve been a reporter virtually all my adult life, and even a wee bit in childhood and adolescence. I like writing interesting stories that a broad audience will read, and so am very pleased to write for various news outlets.
As a freelancer now, however, my storytelling isn’t limited to news organizations. I have branched out to other types of clients and assignments that call on those same writing and editing abilities, the same attention to detail and professionalism that magazines, newspapers and wire services demand.
Nonprofit and corporate clients need good storytellers, too, and who couldn’t use a good editor or writing coach?
In addition to news assignments, I’ve also taken on the following projects lately:
• Employee Communications. I wrote feature stories for the in-house magazine of a major real estate company.
• Ghostwriting. I ghostwrote an article on a complex business topic for a CEO.
• Coaching. I have started work as a writing coach for MBA students at a prestigious business school.
I’ve also done some hybrid work, such as reporting news stories on certain business trends for the website of a major membership organization.
I’m available for case studies, white papers and content for select nonprofit or company blogs as well. If you’re looking for a strong, agile writing professional, please contact me and let’s talk about your project.
