Business & Lifestyle Copywriting, Editing and Photography
Let’s be honest — the web’s already bursting with content. But it’s got a bit of a quality-control problem.
Making your message heard above all the mindless chatter is going to require more than just another humdrum writer; you need the skill of a seasoned, sharp-eyed communicator capable of driving online conversations and not just rehashing them.
Erin brings a broad background in journalism, copywriting and cross-disciplinary editing to bear on projects of all sorts. And she’s a photographer, too!
