How do we start?
We’ll begin with a kick-off conversation to discuss the details of your project. I’ll scope out the requirements and create a timeline and cost estimate for you. When the work is completed, I’ll deliver it to you via email, posting, or other agreed-upon method.
How do you bill?
Projects can be invoiced by an hourly rate or by a flat project fee, depending on our agreement.
What is your process?
I begin projects with research and interviews. I’ll want to review your existing written materials and speak with you and members of your team. Successful project work is always collaborative. The more open the lines of communication are, the better the results.
How many revisions will you do?
I will deliver a first draft and two revisions, unless we have a different agreement.
How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been a professional writer since the early ’90s. Earlier, I was a software developer and an instructor.
Can I speak to your clients as references?
Absolutely. I’ll be happy to provide you with references.
Can you edit or improve our existing documents or marketing materials?
Very likely. I can often elevate the quality of written communications. I’ll use the Track Changes feature of Word so you can see my edits. Many communications projects can benefit from a fresh perspective.
Can you work with our own creative people?
Yes. I often work with and have managed graphic designers, writers and website developers. I’ve produced several websites from start to finish.
Can we hire you full-time job to work for us?
You never know! I am open to all proposals.
Can you design a website?
No. But I can work out the site architecture, write the copy and work with the designers. I can often make useful tweaks to copy or graphics as well.
How are you different from other writers?
I’m a creative writer at heart (a novelist and playwright) with deep experience in business, education and technology, acquired over hundreds of successful projects. That’s a unique combination and an advantage to clients. I bring to my work powerful tools from the creative arts and long experience in the business world. My aim is to use this skill-set to meet our project goals and exceed your expectations.
