Writing Samples

Though I have written copy for financial institutions and covered train crashes and raccoon dinners, the bulk of my experience is in educational and training materials, the arts, elder care and community-centered organizations.

Versatile in style and talent, I have conceptualized and written press releases, news articles, feature articles, training materials, promotional materials, website copy, social media copy, radio and TV spots, corporate and educational video scripts and educational podcast scripts. I ghost wrote a book and have edited papers and publications by non-writer experts.

Ex Fabula, WMSE Food Slam and Action Pact were ongoing blogs. Please see additional posts I wrote (under Steph Kilen for WMSE and Ex Fabula, and "Action Pact" for Action Pact) on those websites.
