I appreciate the “State of the Union”-type address delivered annually by our political leaders. For the most part, they are concise summations of the past year’s achievements — thanks to talented speech writers!
In that spirit, I exercised my marketing muscles and developed my own re-cap of the last twelve months. These are the major highlights of a very busy, very rewarding year for WordScapes, my four-year old home-based writing business.
This past year, I’ve developed and written:
NYNow: Eco-friendly product design is on the rise
The slogan, tagline, and ad copy for the 2010 Dutchess County Tourism campaign
NYNow, a series of e-newsletters on gift and home trends for the New York International Gift Fair
Catalog copy for Good Clean Funds, a fundraising company offering eco-friendly home goods
Press releases promoting the Westchester Triathlon, a Golf Tournament for international chefs, the opening of a “wellness” market, the introduction of the “Tailored Tee” women’s clothing line, and more.
And on the “editorial” side:
An article on multi-generational travel for AAA Home & Away
A round-up of the largest Jack O’Lantern festivals in the U.S. for WomansDay.com
A profile of a sustainable alpaca farmer for The Valley Table magazine
Just for fun, I’ve also launched a family travel blog, “Go BIG or Go Home,” to chronicle what happens when my small-town family visits the “world’s largest”…whatever!
Are there any projects we can work on together this year? Feel free to contact me!
