Margaret is a talented and exceptionally versatile writer. Her 16 years of experience span a variety of genres and subjects: her work ranges from blog posts to longer print features, from tweets to ebooks, from fun food round-ups to thoughtful historical explorations. She can adopt a tone of light enthusiasm, critical academic rigor, or a variety of modes in between, depending on the needs of the piece. Throughout her career, she's written for both business clients and independent publications. She prides herself on her attention to detail and never missing a deadline.
Since 2012, she's been working in online marketing, where she has not only continued to write but also taken an unusual detour of helping clients with their AdWords accounts. Margaret's experience as a marketer has helped her develop a strong focus on audience, putting their needs first. She's knowledgeable about SEO, both how it applies to content and general best practices.
Margaret is someone who can not only help you with writing a particular piece, but also with strategizing your content plan as a whole. She's helped clients develop their editorial calendars and think about how content can increase sales and build trust with an audience.
Before her switch to marketing, she worked as an editor for several publishing companies (mainly in the field of education), and taught writing to students of all ages. She also holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop.
She looks forward to continuing to challenge herself and to grow through serving her clients and their readers.

Margaret is an avid long-term traveler, spending weeks at a time in both Europe and Latin America. She's been learning Spanish as an adult since late 2013. She also likes to work on personal writing projects and her art journal, go hiking, get out on the water, geek out on personal finance and macroeconomics (she's a fan of the Planet Money and Freakonmics podcasts), and continue her quest to develop the perfect brownie recipe.
