Winston-Salem Writer and Editor

As a writer who listens, I can help your organization craft the right message to bring attention to your online presence. My area of expertise include technology in the construction industry, technology in the restaurant industry, and higher education publications, from websites to alumni magazines. I’ve written for inspirational publications such as Guideposts and daily newspapers like the Winston-Salem Journal. I have edited for non-profit service organizations and for-profit corporations. I’m comfortable crafting a restaurant review, a deep dive into government regulation, or a well-researched white paper.

I also offer editing services. Here’s what one client says: “Laura was one of the copyeditors and proofreaders of my book Indefinite Postponement. I appreciated her agreeable disposition, her promptness of reply, her nuanced appreciation of the language, and her speed in a deadline situation. I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to her collaboration on future projects.” –John P. Williams, MD

Recent reported work includes pieces on the trend of off-site building, new rules for crane operators, ending sexual harassment, the careers of two female bricklayers, and the importance of the data road map.

I am also a writing coach who specializes in helping high-school students generate college-application essays in person or via Skype. Here’s what I’ve heard about that: “Laura gave our daughter the tools to respond to the Common Application Essay prompts sincerely, succinctly, and with confidence.” –Parents of a high school senior admitted to her two top choices.

In the last several years, I have returned to the practice of literary writing, winning recognition, publication in literary journals, and earning an MFA from The Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.
