Insightful Writing Services

 

I’m Joanne

I am a writer and storyteller for hire.
I will work collaboratively with you to write and edit your story until it shines.

 

Your story is outstanding. It deserves to be told well.

Writing has always been a big part of who I am. After recently being let go due to company      re-structuring, I felt the time was now or never to make writing an even bigger part of my life.

Words on Point, Insightful Writing Services is the result.

I work with individuals and businesses to develop and write their story. Whether it be a personal memoir, web content for a business, blogs or advertorial copy, my process is the same. I collaborate with you to turn your ideas into your story.

This means we talk – a lot.

In the beginning I will ask you a lot of questions. It will seem like I am interviewing you. In fact, that is exactly what I am doing!
As the writing progresses, we will talk some more and work together to fine tune your story.

When the writing is done, I hope I have made your story shine.

How I can help you

We will start with your ideas. Then we will add my words to create content that informs and educates. Sometimes it will be inspirational and at others entertaining. We will work together to establish the mood and voice you desire.

My story, your story and

eight promises

I have been writing for a long time.

Most recently, I worked for a daily newspaper and wrote curriculum-based programs for use in the classroom. Along with this came the associated marketing campaigns, web copy and promotional material.

The curriculum development skills arose from my work as a developmental editor and curriculum developer for various educational publishing companies and from my experience as a classroom teacher. But, I was writing long before that.
