Services

Everyone’s writing and editing needs are different, so I can only provide the following general list. Please email me about pricing and other specifics. I would love to work with you on any writing project!

I work with a local book designer who assists me with my own publishing projects. If you have an idea for a book (e.g. an artist book, an illustrated memoir, a book of  photography, or a local history)  I will be happy to share my ideas and more than 20 years of publishing experience.

Please email me and we can set up an interview time so we can discuss your project.

My Power Point presentations appeal to historical groups, literary, and art-minded groups and retirement communities .   My topics include the early iron industry of northern Chester County; early transportation, and the history of the Conestoga Turnpike; the Brandywine Tradition; and Howard Pyle and the “Red Rose Girls.”

Web content writing

Services are based on an hourly rate and can include updating your current web site to ensure that your “About me/us” profile is interesting and relevant to your services.  My experience includes writing content for nonprofit arts groups and professional artists. 

Assistance With Short Pieces

Services include writing or editing artist’s statements, catalogue captions, book introductions, or artist biographies or short profiles.  If you are a professional artist, and are using p.r. materials that are more than five years old, it’s likely that you are sending out the wrong message.
