Advertising and Marketing Writing


My advertising copy has been virtually all in print media. I’ve worked in-house for a trade publisher, writing corporate brochures and print campaigns, small-space in major daily newspapers to promote special issues; and trade advertising. In an agency setting, I produced tech/trade ads for various clients. I’ve written small-space ads and campaigns for restaurants and educational institutions, marketing releases for a variety of clients, and brochures for small businesses.
