Here are four examples of blogs and long-form writing that I’ve authored. If you’re interested in learning more about my approach to writing (as a writer and as a manager of editorial teams), check out this page also.
- “Opting Out of Tests? More to It Than Meets the Eye” (written for the Hunt Institute)
- “How a 7-Year-Old Incorporates Deeper Learning By Building a Patio Deck” (written for Council for a Strong America)
- “Ripples in Space” (Written for Education Post “Head in the Sand” blog)
- “Expectations” (Appeared on the How is My Kid Doing project site)
I’ve authored and/or edited the majority of web copy at organizations in which I’ve worked. I also write the majority of the copy for infographics that I design. At Families USA, I wrote all of the copy for backgrounder pieces explaining the organization’s position on issues ranging from enrolling Americans in health care to Medicaid expansion. Here are a few examples:
- Issue backgrounders: Affordable Care Act
- Issue backgrounders: Medicaid
- Issue backgrounders: Health Equity
Below is an example of a tough piece. The accompanying report was produced in record time in response to fast-moving policy developments. There were multiple public authors (and several internal ones). And it was important to write the copy in close fidelity to the original report for the reporters and other audiences who were likely to skip the report altogether.
- Ten Enrollment Fixes (ghost-written for the authors)
