Writing is my first great love. I started at age six and I will quit when I draw my last breath.
I’ve written for ad agencies, PR companies, newspapers, investment
houses, B2B agencies, financial institutions, new media start-ups, insurance giants, small businesses and big corporations.
My specialty? Making difficult topics simple, but keeping them interesting. Knowing the audience and writing for a reason.
I’ve produced ad copy, TV and radio commercials, internal newsletters, external newsletters, web copy, features, in-depth interviews, marketing copy, promotional material, brochures and a book.
My book, Raw Art Journaling: Making Meaning, Making Art, published by North Light Books, launched in July, 2011.
I’m the Business of Art columnist for Somerset Studio Magazine and write a column for Stampington’s new Art Quilt magazine.
I’m a contributor to several websites, ‘zines, and blogs, including Create Mixed Media link: http://www.createmixedmedia.com/category/blogs/creative-insights

A freelancer can often get your work done faster and more concisely than your own staff. Working on your project in her office can get the work done without interruptions, meetings and distractions.
Quinn is not involved in your corporate culture, your business and your day-to- day teams, so she can offer a fresh perspective.
Because Quinn is not building a career in your department, her viewpoint is less constrained and more focused on the outcome of the writing. A freelancer can often represent the views of your client and speak to them more clearly than your own writers.
Using Your Team & a Freelancer If you would rather use your own writers, but they are over-worked, ask me for help. I can step in and work on a project to free up your writers, or I can train your writers in a style or method they are unfamiliar with.
Web writers often stumble over detailed reports; marketing writers may have problems conducting in-depth interviews.
