Projects by Industry
Humor

Kenyon writes for the quirky Everton Fanzine, "Speke from the Harbour," as well as the the Everton match reports from his own website. His short story, "Space Creature Versus Earth Creature" was published by "Jersey Devil Press"

Sports

Kenyon writes about sports on his Yahoo content page, his football website, and his Squidoo page. He writes with humor and authority on all aspects of sports, and with an emphasis on personalities.

Music

Kenyon writes songs and writes about songs. He can transition seamlessly between genres whether writing music or writing about a music style. In particular he enjoys jazz, folk, fifties rock and roll, classic rock and punk.

Travel

Kenyon possesses the ability to bring all five senses into play within the theater of travel writing. Some people will say what they mean, but Kenyon says what he sees, and he says it with a unique and vivid voice. Whether it is travel accommodations, beaches, deserts or ruins, Kenyon will capture the experience as with a camera, or paint it as with a brush.

Food

Before becoming a writer full time, Kenyon managed restaurants for years. Kenyon can bring you into a restaurant, seat you, hand out menus, and have you mentally carving turkey or slicing tender strips of steak before you have left the text and headed for the restaurant. He cannot promise group rates for articles however.

Garden

Kenyon became a serious gardner after writing a series of articles on how to have a beautiful yard for the summer. Kenyon knocked out several articles on the topic despite the fact that his yard looked less like a backyard, and more like a wrecking yard. He began to take his own advice and today enjoys a thriving, lush back garden enjoyed by pets, butterflies, gophers, and himself.

Outdoor/Recreation

Kenyon has spent a lifetime getting away from it all. Each brilliant escape led to a happy return, and Kenyon is only too happy to write about the moments, as well as the weeks.Sometimes Kenyon desires to stay inside and lounge, but his dog insists upon exploration as a way of life.

Fashion

Although Kenyon does not consider himself a fashion maven, unless second-hand jeans, ripped T-shirts, and run-down boots count for something, he has managed to satisfy a few customers customers while writing about it. Enough, in fact, to pay for a life-time of second-hand Levis.

Pets

Kenyon loves animals, be it furry, feathered, or underdogs. Just throw him a leash and he will be off and running with any sort of animal article you desire. Since Kenyon pays strict attention to details, you will have no need to clean up after him either. Be it parakeet or parrot, poodle or pit bull, Kenyon loves writing about pets.

Health

Like the cobbler with the shoes, Kenyon is more worried about your health than he is about his own. Allow him to tackle any health issue and write about it for you. In the meantime, he continues his search for healthy beer.

Projects by Asset Type
Copywriting

Kenyon is constantly studying this field, and has been paid for some projects.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

Kenyon is able to write about any subject as though he were telling you about it while sitting on a front porch, whittling and sipping lemonade. This is not to say he affects a folksy style, he is just able to write the way people talk.

Humorous

Kenyon has been described as a gonzo writer. This means that he either writes somewhere in the stratosphere of craziness, or that he failed fifth-grade English. However, because of his close connections with Liverpudlians, he is able to cool the zaniness, and switch the temperature to "Dry" whenever he likes.

Promotional

Kenyon has studied copywriting as carefully as songwriting and prose. He enjoys walking readers down what Robert Bly calls the "Slippery Slope" of text and down to the "Buy Now" button. Promotional writing is the rock and roll of prose, and Kenyon loves rock and roll.
