This concept was created as an internship assignment for an event at Team Detroit. I wrote the copy for this campaign with designer Nikki Roach.
I develoedp posters with the director of communications to grow engagement at the agency. Created the slogan: Five positive culture committees. Five different ways to get engaged.
I wrote and edited copy for many agency wide e-mails. This is an example of using Team Detroit Give branding to communicate a volunteer opportunity for the agency.
I created a blog space for the interns on "Stuff" and coordinated postings. I edited posts, created an agency communication about the internship program, and created blog posts.
I assisted in creating concepts for Instagram and posting photos for the agency.
I assisted in creating Facebook posts complete with assets and copy to represent activities at the agency.
I assisted in creating tweets for the Team Detroit twitter as well as making sure to retweet and favorite relevant content.
As the social media coordinator for Honor Homes, I created tweets to represent the Ann Arbor renovation company and interact with relevant Twitter accounts.
I found relevant content to post on the renovation company's Facebook Account as well as interacted with social media users via this platform.
I collaborated and wrote a choose your own adventure story that users could interact with via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.
I created press releases, edited manuscripts, and created blog content. This clip is an example from an interview I did with Melanie Jordan that was used on the Sundress Wordpress.
My full publication list can be found on my LinkedIn Account (link above). This was written as the Nature in Words Fellow. The Minetta Review is associated with NYU.
As an intern at Poets House, one of my many responsibilities was managing their social media accounts. This consisted of advising on Facebook, Twitter and Hootsuite.
