Nuanced narratives that engage your stakeholders.

Is your content falling flat? Does your association or institution struggle to share stories that resonate with your audience? Many organizations settle for dry content that lacks any kind of narrative pull. Let’s just say this doesn’t exactly inspire your readers, members or customers.

Imagine the alternative: Content that packages dry information within compelling narratives, and drives readers to action.

This is where I come in. (Hi! It’s great to meet you). I’m a storyteller and writer who crafts stories that convey your association or company’s mission, values, and impact. Think profiles that go beyond the resume regurgitation, or features that hook a reader and never let them go.

‘One of my go-to profile writers’

“I’m always looking for strong profile writers who can tell a member’s story in a compelling narrative journalism style—not just a chronology of their schooling and career. … Mike more than met those expectations right out of the gate. He has become one of my go-to profile writers.

When I give Mike an assignment, I know I don’t have to worry about the outcome. It will be beautifully written, pulling out some compelling stories from the source, and also address the nuances for our particular membership audience. In addition, he’s easy to work with, personable, requires little editing and always meets his deadlines.” — Melanie Padgett Powers, Freelance editor for membership associations
