Received Certificate of Exceptional Completion


Projects by Industry
Entertainment

Promotional copy for Radio highlighting various aspects of the station format; contests and giveaways; live commercial copy and EOS-tags; public service announcements.
This style employs one of two main delivery methods:
1/ multiple versions of the copy with repetitious intros and outros, then changing the 'informational body' of the copy with each version, accentuating or promoting a single station aspect or event.
2/ scripted explanatory with exposition crafted from standard music, effects, dialog and/or 'listener-supplied comments.'

Spirituality

Created for immediate broadcast, this is a written eulogy for a suddenly deceased comedian.

The irony is sublime.

Real Estate

Creator of Real Estate Writer's Daily Story-Blogs. The unique perspective forming the core of this daily story-driven blog content incorporates recurring characters in a dialog-based interplay of real-estate themed dramatizations that set up a conflict, and then provide a solution to common issues encountered routinely by both agents and clients.

In addition to a storytelling style, Marc also crafts standard real-estate-related articles and blog posts.

Projects by Asset Type
Blog Post

Standard Real Estate blog article that incorporates a 'Numbered Informational Improvement' style of narrative that lists various methods of changing or improving the
'conundrum du jour,' from '5 Ways To A Happy Mailbox' through 'A Dozen Things To Do With Old Dentures.'

Radio Spot

A standard radio informational designed to build brand awareness, the spot is backed with an easy, light Jazz music track and accentuating 'Construction Tools' SFX at key memory points. One of six variations utilizing 'foundation,' 'stability,' 'loyalty' and 'trust' as neural-recall anchors.

Book

An excerpt from the first of a trilogy set of seed stories that provide the background/backstory origins for a set of Future Prescient Series novels.

Projects By Expertise
Copywriter

Whether terrestrial or online, running a radio station provides a daily challenge of managing a large number of audio and informational assets all needing constant review. Radio is known for its immediacy and intimacy; the missing sense of sight harbored the mystique of radio until the advent of webcams and satellite syndication. Regardless, there is still one universal constant:

In radio, copy-writing is a way of life.

Journalist

More than 40 years as a news-copywriter and on-air radio newscaster.

Also written and submitted newspaper articles for local publication;
a rural-themed Seasonal News & Lifestyle piece.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

A unique blend of modern Flash Fiction story-writing technique and current trending real estate topics. The story-blogs are about a 1000 words, providing a quick, insightful read that zooms into a relevant aspect of our modern real estate business climate, and highlights a key ‘takeaway’ nugget in each post.

The unique perspective forming the core of this daily story-driven website content incorporates recurring characters in a dialog-based interplay of real-estate themed dramatizations, weaving current and trending facts that set up a conflict, and then provide a solution to common issues encountered routinely by both agents and clients.

This style can be adapted to any profession and customized to a client's local and professional needs. The clients themselves can also be written into the stories to enhance credibility and trust.

Humorous

A voice class assignment near the end of the course asked the students to write their own copy and bring it to class to be recorded in an exercise at recognizing one's 'natural delivery using their own words.' Tougher than it sounds.

This is an excerpt of an actual event in the life of a young disc jockey paying dues on the overnight shift and what hunger can do to even a dedicated broadcast professional.

Promotional

This involves a specific campaign for Colon Cancer Awareness Month in cooperation with some concerned comedians in promoting this health issue. The comedy radio station took a light-hearted approach and dedicated plenty of air-time to comedy music and bits about medical visits, etc. as well as an intense on-air hourly promotional campaign.
