Efficient writers draw on their "toolboxes" to get work done. Tools can include everything from classic reference materials — William Zinsser's "On Writing Well," for example — to a set of questions to answer before beginning — What am I trying to say? How should I talk to my audience? — to the latest design and editing apps.

Storytelling is a crucial part of the toolbox. By figuring out what stories to tell, I can help you take dry facts to a human level. With content marketing, I can help you connect your cause or business with stories that support your goals while creating something worth your target audience’s time.

Do we want it?
