Story Writing & Press Releases

11008566_10203857115295011_5876786251513051728_nAs an award-winning writer, blogger and print journalist of 20-plus years, Tim has written long form narrative, opinion, news, features, columns and blogs for both daily and weekly newspapers and magazines across Massachusetts and beyond. He also has a published online educational book.

With a total story count numbering in the thousands of bylines reaching hundreds of thousands of readers, businesses can truly benefit from Tim’s diversity and expertise in writing acumen over other more non-journalistic centric marketing firms.

If your business needs a promotional piece written, Tim can take it to a new level of sophistication and interest by telling an actual story about that employee’s promotion, new hire, board decision, or product launch instead of just selling the concept in a pre-canned, static press release.

Consumers today want to be entertained and enlightened as much as they want the basic facts on what they are considering to purchase. Tim excels at taking a story telling approach to marketing writing by implementing the core journalistic concepts of accuracy, strong hook leads, smooth transitions, fascinating quotes, robust sourcing, and killer endings. These are skills not obtained in marketing 101 classes. You learn them on the beat as a newspaper reporter over many years.

Not only can Tim’s writing read like an actual news or feature story for your business, but he also understands diverse audiences and how to engage specific ones you are targeting. This skillset was developed over many years of him covering multiple town and city beats, requiring the savvy to adjust to any given assignment or breaking news situation. Tim can also shoot good photography to compliment the theme of your business marketing needs.
