Social Media Management and Grant Writing

613 2nd St. Indian Rocks Beach, FL 33785


Using my skills as a writer, social media manager, and grant writer, I intend to help artists, arts organizations, and small businesses find the attention and funding they need in these uncertain times. As a freelance writer, I am able to take on individual clients and work to their specific needs in a way that larger companies cannot do.
