A note from managing partner Loren M. Blinde, PhD

A couple of years ago, my mom ran into my third-grade teacher. Mrs. D’Amario – who was, and remains, the favorite teacher of every single student in my class – remembered me. (In the interest of full disclosure, you should know that she remembers every student she has ever had.)

Where the story gets interesting, though, is in what she said next: “I remember Loren. What a writer! What is she doing now?”

My mom: “She’s a writer.”

Of course.

I don’t know what I could have written at the age of eight that was memorable. But while I was dreaming of becoming a ballerina, a scientist, or a big band conductor, my third-grade teacher had my vocation pegged. And you know what? She was right. I’m delighted to have the opportunity each day to help my clients energize their communications and get results.

When you hire me, you get the writing and research expertise of an English professor combined with the marketing savvy of a creative entrepreneur. I know how to analyze an audience and design written content that gets results.

Unlike many copywriters in the marketplace, I bring a strong academic background to the craft. After earning a PhD in English from the University of California, Los Angeles, I worked as a college English professor and a grant writer before launching Writing Power full time in 2008.

President, MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center

As the publisher and editor-in-chief of an online news publication, Intelligence Community News, that covers the marketplace for goods and services sold to the U.S. Intelligence Community, I was looking for a talented, responsible, savvy, hard-working writer/reporter/editor who could take on most of the day-to-day editorial responsibilities (so I could focus on other matters).

Loren Blinde, of Writing Power, has been a “god-send” to me because she has capably stepped into my shoes and done an absolutely outstanding job of picking up a hundred tasks and doing each of them excellently. I could not have asked for a better writing consultant. You can’t go wrong with Loren!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Loren Blinde at Writing Power on our web content. She is truly a professional of her craft. She listens to your needs and can easily understand and fill in the blanks to produce great copy for your business. Her solid copywriting skills and her business know-how truly delivers copy that targets your audience. Loren recognizes the importance of writing for a business, which comes through in her work.

In addition to a great end product, working with Loren was a complete pleasure. I feel it’s hard to find people these days that “get it” and “get it” across the board. Loren is one of those people. She has an intellect that goes beyond a studied skill.

Now I just have to come up with another project, so I can work with Loren again. I would definitely recommend Loren Blinde and Writing Power for your copywriting needs.
