Get those bold ideas out of your head, onto the page, and show that smug, blinking cursor who’s boss.

You know you have a book inside of you, but you just can’t seem to find the time to write it. I know—better than many—that the hardest part about creating content is sometimes just getting started. I can help you get unstuck. Or maybe you’re up to your elbows in content and you need someone to get into the sausage-making with you. I love to brainstorm and bounce ideas around!

Emily is Audacia Strategies' secret weapon!

Emily is an incredible writer and a fantastic content strategist. She always makes the customers perspective the priority, and it shows. We have excellent engagement with our blog posts, newsletter and website copy. And the best part? Working with Emily is She asks great questions, does her research and takes the time to really "get" our voice. Plus, she's always jargon-free, funny and a blast to work with. I can't imagine Audacia Strategies without her partnership.

Emily helped ghostwrite an article for a major publication in which I have a recurring column. I had a ton of notes, just no time to pull it all together - or figure out what needed to be cut. Emily dug right in and not only filled in the blanks, she gave it color, depth and humor - it was ready to submit in no time, with very little back and forth. Emily understands how to take complex ideas (and rambling thoughts) and turn them into a cohesive, compelling and valuable article.

Thanks Emily!

I’m not one to mince words, so if you tick ANY of the boxes below, I’m not the right fit for you. Don’t bother to reach out if you are:

  • Looking for a transactional relationship. I’m not a word vending machine, I’m a writer. If you don’t want to really engage with me and do deep work together, we will frustrate the crap out of each other.
  • SEO-obsessed. While SEO is important, I am not interested in cranking out blog posts overflowing with keywords. They may satiate Google, but frankly, it’s a waste of resources to write for robots. Hard pass.
  • Unsure about what you want. If you have a phenomenal story or curiosity-sparking ideas that you’re ready to share with the world, I’m game. If you just want someone to hold your hand while you decide if you’re ready, look elsewhere.
  • Looking to crank out a cookie-cutter book so you can launch your speaking career. You’re better off recording your thoughts and hiring a transcriber. That’s what content mills are for.
  • In need of a copy editor, proofreader, or formatter. All respect to folks who do that important work, but I am not one of them. I do developmental and substantive editing for select clients, but I will not read through your manuscript just to correct your grammar or size your margins.
  • Someone who talks about “growth hacking,” “incentivizing users,” or how “impactful” things should be. Jargon is my kryptonite. I can tolerate a bit of it IF, and only if, strategic use positions a client as a thought leader. But, “at the end of the day,” (Barf!) anyone who just throws buzzwords around for kicks or to make themselves look smart? I’m not interested.

Pass the test? Marvelous! Reach out and let’s make a plan on how we can collaborate.
