Can I tell your story? Let's get it on paper, make it a reality, bring it to life.

I have interviewed entrepreneurs and artists in Charleston, SC for local magazines and newspapers, including the Charleston City Paper and West of Newspaper. I have sample links posted below, but a more complete set of my published work can b found at my website. I also have experience in technical writing and customer service.

At my namesake blog, KathleenWCurry, I muse about language, word use, communications issues. I have been blogging about Easily Confused Words for years.

Please contact me via email if you have writing or documentation you want completed.
