I was a staff writer for the REAP Record, a quarterly newsletter for the Redwood Empire Association of Paralegals (REAP). I have also ghostwritten blog posts and various other online content. elegant-1769669_640


I designed this poster for a Bluegrass Festival scheduled on September 9, 2017. This fun project entailed locating and manipulating free-use graphics to create just the right feel for the small-town festival. The purpose of this poster is to draw in the community. 

I also designed a half-sheet of this poster to remind the community to save the date for the festival.

 I worked with the Redwood Writers Club team to promote the club presence at the Sonoma County Fair in August 2017. For this event, I wrote a press release and revised the graphics and text of a promotional pamphlet for public circulation.


I was the editor of the Redwood Writer, a  newsletter for the Redwood Writers Club, from June 2012 through April 2014.  Below are links to some of my favorite Redwood Writer newsletters during my tenure as editor.
