Projects by Asset Type
Web Page

Working as a freelance writer, Amanda has helped to create website copy for 2 different companies in 2 different industries. In one case, the website copy consisted of product descriptions for a furniture manufacturer. The other project consisted of copy for an organization specializing in online reputation management.

Press Release

Working most recently at a start-up, Amanda is familiar with writing press releases to gain greater traction within the local and national community. Press release topics have included: opening up a local office, releasing a new book, announcing a new project and partnership. Her experience writing in this category extends to working across companies to ensure all necessary pieces of information are included.

Email Copy

As a part of both her work in event planning as well as publishing, well-structured emails were a regular part of Amanda's work. These emails included inquiries to high-profile executives and speakers as well as feedback to artists regarding their publication submissions. Many emails were created on a one-off basis; however, for responses that were more generic, Amanda created form letters and responses that could be altered to fit each individual need.

Projects By Expertise

Amanda has written session descriptions, product descriptions and other website copy for various industries and events. Though much of it is marketing copy, she has experience writing in more casual scenarios as well as for high-level audiences that typically read only the first few sentences before determining whether an item is worth their time.

Projects by Writing Style

Most of Amanda's conversational writing experience comes from her involvement with Portland Women Writers as well as her own blog, which she will be debuting in its improved form in April 2016. In many instances, a conversational tone of voice is what's needed for organizations to relate to their audiences via social media/other online outputs.


Amanda's experience writing promotional materials comes from event planning, the need to advertise sessions for executives, as well as product descriptions, the need to entice the audience to purchase said product. In both of these spaces, the audience is incredibly important. Though they are both promotional types of writing, because of the various audiences, the tone and language will bear marked differences.
