As a business magazine and newspaper writer, I’ve produced articles about battling hospitals, company restructuring, business logistics, advertising, education, robotics, energy, technology and more.

For corporate clients, I’ve written about hardware, banking, hospitality, purchasing, printing, manufacturing, retail, health care and the arts.

I’m a veteran journalist, editor, copy editor. My work has been pleasing editors and corporate clients for more than 30 years. I’m known for being able to craft an article or complete a client project on schedule and on budget.

My writing specialties include profiles, features and news articles. A few of my articles are posted here as PDF files. I’ve also done copyediting for corporate clients and magazines, including American Magazine and Chicken Soup for the Soul Magazine.

    Hi! I keep wondering if I’ve somehow met you in the past. I lived in Memphis and wrote for the Memphis Business Journal a number of years ago…

  5. Small world, Jennifer. I did my journalism internship at MBJ and worked full time there until 1987. You are so much younger than I (I was a grandmother already when I went to college) that I doubt we met during that time. Afterwards, I edited the university alumni publication before moving into full-time freelancing.
    I also was very much involved for many years with Women in Communications when Memphis had an active chapter here, and at Memphis State I served on the Board and then as president of the Journalism Alumni chapter. Martha Muse and I founded the Freedom of Information Forum while we were students at the university (it was still Memphis State University then) and I stayed involved with that event for many years afterwards–so we may have crossed paths at any of those times. Does any of that ring a bell with you?

  6. Hi Laverne,

    Thanks for your interesting articles – I’ve got you bookmarked, and want to make a comment on your most recent “why writers should query first” post, but can’t think of anything you haven’t already covered! Great post: accurate and brief yet comprehensive.

    You’ve got me listed in your “I read” blogroll – which I LOVE! Thank you. But, could you put my “Quips & Tips for Freelance Writers” blog instead of my website? The blog is better for writers. Here’s the link: http://theadventurouswriter.com/blogwriting/

    Thanks again for your article – and keep them coming!


  7. Laurie,
    Many thanks for your kind words. I have great joy in writing this blog so your comment is icing on the cake.

    I’ve made the change you suggested to my “I Read” section. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    Continued good luck with your writing!
