Lissa attended three colleges, accumulating two years credit altogether. She left college primarily due to family reasons, and also because the specific training she was looking for in music, at that time, was not being provided.
Since the beginning of the year, Lissa has been answering a lot of questions in the healthcare field. She has enjoyed learning more about the human body, and particularly enjoys investigating alternatives to mainstream medicine. She finds it interesting to read articles with different opinions on, for example, how to treat specific symptoms. This is where the skill of a writer comes in - to make it clear to the reader there are choices and information to help make informed decisions.
Lissa has owned her own music business company for over 20 years. It has involved three primary categories of work; promotion, marketing and booking. Promotion of single artists and bands has included special events such as raffle drawings for trips, distribution of t-shirts and CDs and being selected to sing with the band. The type and level of promotion depends on the venue, payment and length of performance schedule. Marketing requires a portfolio with CD, including a biography of the performer or band, which is sent out to club owners, booking agents and managers. I create ad copy for a variety of platforms, from internet publicity to local flyers made with basic graphics and catchy headlines to entice an audience. Booking requires making necessary travel arrangements, assuring proper stage set-up, writing and executing contracts and following through to ensure venue and artist are both happy with the entire business and performance arrangements.
Lissa has been writing for an online website as an Answer Writer. She researches answers to specific questions on approved websites, and answers questions using the AP writing style. Lissa has recently been writing articles pertaining to food, from recipes to the importance of eating certain foods and food combinations, to the details of serving a proper meal. She enjoys writing about food because she is an avid cook and baker, and has done catering on the side for years.
Lissa has been writing for a number of online companies, requiring blog, answer and educational writing. She knows AP style writing as well as MLA format writing. She enjoys the challenge of different styles, as well as the research involved. Lissa has written for several E Learning websites with topics ranging from proper study habits, the importance of learning specific subject material and more in-depth papers on a variety of topics. She does her homework to ensure a complete grasp of the subject matter in order to write an intelligent, well-crafted article or answer.
Lissa has written many promotional releases as well as biographical reviews. She has owned her own business for over 30 years that books and tours bands in and out of the U.S. Part of her job has been to put together promotional kits and negotiate and create performance contracts. She has also written ad copy and press releases for upcoming shows.
