A Chorus Line reference! Because I am a big ol’ theater nerd! Sorry not sorry.
So I’m looking for work, freelance or full-time. My book with Susan McCarthy, SORRY SORRY SORRY: THE CASE FOR GOOD APOLOGIES, will be out next year (it’s based on our apology-analysis web site, SorryWatch) and I’m working on other stuff, but I NEED MORE SCHMONEY.
Here are some of my fave clips, in no particular order. Rest assured that I can write in a much more neutral voice (or a fancy-pants voice! I am a magna cum laude Harvard grad with a double concentration in English and Folklore & Mythology!) when called for, but why not share some snazzier, grippier stuff? Ask me if you wanna see my corporate work and I’ll be happy to send you some links.

Here’s a somewhat less “voice-y” women’s mag story. I was a contributing editor at Self (and before that, Glamour) for years. I can do service journalism!
Also: I am also a superb copyeditor. I love copyediting; I find it both gratifying and soothing.
