I’ve written for a wide range of online formats. My audience ranges from the ten people interested in a niche issue to the 100,000 subscribers of an email list. I have written to launch movements, tell stories, ask for donations, and explain complicated technical processes. I have written editorials, email blasts, blog posts, letters to Congress, speeches, annual reports, and profiles. Above all, I strive to write in a clear, personal, and when possible, original style.
