Writing Services

Are you casting about for the right words to tell your story?

Grant writing, copywriting, blogs and freelance articles all contain elements of storytelling. Today, it is hard to find a spot on the web that isn’t talking about it. Storytelling for nonprofits, businesses, individuals – even products – everyone and everything appears to need a story to get attention.

Here’s why. A good story can enchant your audience. A dull one won’t hold them. Stories can teach, warn, persuade, enlighten, engage and inspire us. A well-told story is capable of changing hearts and minds.

Discover how strategic storytelling can help you create meaningful connections.

Grant writing is storytelling in a concise, restricted format. More and more funders are turning to on-line applications that count characters and spaces. Choosing the right words for clarity is more important than ever to help you secure a funder’s interest and support.

Business writing may seem a far cry from storytelling until you take a closer look. You have a story. Your service or your product has a story. The story you tell will reveal that you understand the customers’ needs by giving them relevant, actionable information.


Does your personal blog need editing before you post it? Or, would you like assistance bringing that great article idea to life? Consultants often need tightly written sales proposals to land high-end clients. Remember, storytelling is woven throughout good content.
