Website Content: composition, revision, organization.
My portfolio includes website content that I have wholly composed for clients, along with content that I have written as assigned, as well as edited and revised. I have also created websites using programs including Dreamweaver and WIX.
Worked with business owner to focus and phrase content for launch of her coaching website, More Than A Resume. Used listening skills to understand and shape key messages to her clients, who are making the transition from college to career. Collaborated and advised on content layout and delivery, then produced by design professional. Owner makes updates and revisions to content and design, with occasional input from me.
Brought on project by McLean-Cowan Design to create content and communication navigation for this classic supper club in Sherwood, WI.
Walleye Weekend 40th Anniversary
Hired by the Director of Festivals to write content used in multiple ways to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this large annual multi-day event held in Lakeside Park. Content appeared on FDL Festivals website and Facebook page, and in news releases used to generate coverage by area media outlets.
Bauer Physical Therapy
Brought on project by McClean-Cowan Design to create content and communication navigation for a solo physical therapy practitioner. Neither the designer nor I made screen shots of the redesign at the time of the launch, and soon thereafter the business owner left solo practice and joined a group practice with its own website. Files here show the content I wrote from my own research, and a few design plans from the designer.
Longtime freelance writer for this independent, award-winning Chicago neighborhood newspaper focusing on the Near-West, West, and South sides of the city. Content released both online and in print.

Open Circle website
Gifted website creation, including navigation and initial content, to my church, Open Circle Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Fond du Lac, WI. All work done by me in Dreamweaver. At the time, the fellowship was three years old and did not yet have regular pastoral leadership or office staff. In the years since, website responsibility and revision is handled by staff.
