Grant & Creative Writing

Grant Proposals & Copywriting that Sells!

As a northern transplant to the deep south, I can write to just about any audience out there. My clients agree:

     "Beautifully crafted re-write with fine-attention to detail, will hire again!"    

     "Mary went above and beyond. She really invested herself in the project and brought all of her talents to the table. She did a masterful job capturing the essence of the project in her writing ... and made a positive impact overall. I will work with her again."

The Secret for Success? It's All Marketing!

You need copy that commands attention, engages readers, and moves them to take action. You can read my resume or portfolio on Upwork, so let's see what you need:
     -- well-written and proofed, grammatically correct, engaging web pages?
     -- blog posts that show you know what you're doing -- you're trustable?
     -- about us pages that convey professionalism, dedication, and values?
     -- emails (autoresponders) that people actually enjoy receiving and reading?
     -- fun animated videos to convey who you are and put visitors at ease?
     -- web bios, compelling speeches ... have I left anything out?

The web's changing and your copy needs to reflect the new style. It's friendlier and more human, inviting the reader to join you on your journey and make it theirs, too. I write for the new web so there's oxygen in my writing ... let's talk!

Grant Writing:
Is grant writing really marketing? You better believe it! Creative grant writing wins the awards, whether it's for an afterschool program, a performing arts series, or a new school. A funder once told me they were always happy to read my proposals because they didn't leave them holding their heads in their hands. They consistently funded our projects and I can create the same engaging proposals for you.

Take a look at my resume and portfolio and you'll see my experience. What do you need?
     -- a fundraising plan with goals, objectives and action steps?
     -- prospect research to find funders who will resonate with your project?
     -- grant writing -- one-off or ongoing with a year-long calendar?
     -- consultation on the nonprofit world? It's nothing like for-profit!

I've created the pages, videos, and some of the articles for this site. You can see a list of grants I've won here. Take a look at my freelance portfolio on Upwork, and you'll see I can successfully tackle a wide range of projects. Then contact me!
