Let’s get one thing out of the way: If you’re looking for a typical writer-editor for your publication, you’ve come to the wrong place. Sure, I “get” content. I’ve been in the publishing industry for 14 years, much of that as a “print” editor and writer.
But while I remain nostalgic about the permanence of the printed word, I’m far more enthused by the expansive possibilities made possible by mobile, tablet and other technology innovations. A master’s in digital media entrepreneurship recently converted me from a one-trick traditionalist to a forward-thinking futurist. And coordinating an entrepreneurship institute for journalism educators has only enhanced my understanding of online platforms–how to create, maintain, market and monetize them. I’m old-school background meets new-school skills.
So how can I help advance your company or product? If your content goals require sophisticated judgment combined with facility across platforms typical writer-editors are less familiar with, I might be a good match. Need help curating a niche online publication; maintaining a mobile app or website; creating an online community, html newsletter, ebook, webinar podcast and more; or simply someone who understands multiplatform content development? I’m the one.
Like all entrepreneurs, The Editress has a day job. Mine involves intrapreneurship, sales, change leadership and multiplatform content development. Which means I can also manage migration to new and innovative platforms across your organization and message the marketing pitch that goes with them.
