content strategy & development
From monthly newsletters to web content, to social media, I've written a lot of things you've read on the internet.
I developed a social media strategy for Face Rock Creamery that, in six months, led to an increase of 500% in their Twitter followers. This strategy included content calendars and development (copy, ad hoc photography), and regular engagement on the platform.
In 1997, I wrote my first journal entry. I was 7 and at Chili's, and apparently I had the baby-back ribs.
Since then, I've continued to write--lengthy MySpace Bulletins, Vaguebook posts, ill-fated blogs on LiveJournal--and then I went on to college and became an English major.
Professionally, most of my writing is longer-form, as press releases, company blog posts, newsletters, corporate communications, social media copy, etc.
Some of my published writing can be found at the links below, but I'm happy to share other examples if you'd like. Just send me an email!
Additionally, this is my current blog, Notes from Morrison.
