As the writing consultant for TheOfficeElf, a home-based business in Creston, BC, I write content for blogs, web pages, newsletters, and other forms of media, create brochures, business cards and assist with resume writing. I also edit and proofread other documents including web and blog content. I created a memoir writing project where I volunteer at one of the local senior residences helping a few seniors with writing their personal stories. I am a volunteer tutor for Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) – Adult Literacy, Adult Basic Education, and ESL programs. I have reached the level of Competent Communicator as a member of Creston Valley Toastmasters Club 4949. I have presented one of my poems as a project from the Interpretative Reading manual.
I have been a writing consultant for more than ten years working with people across the spectrum of interests and occupations:
- Published authors (books in print and e-books)
- Human resources mangers (updating manuals and documents)
- College/University students (research & research writing)
- Members of clergy
- Web content, memoirs, and resumes
I have a few stories that are aching to be told but as of yet I have not set them down on paper. My writings fall into these genres: inspirational, erotic poetry, and romantic poetry.
I published a poem entitled FIRE under the name Winne Jackson. It is a poem inspired by the rekindling of a tentative romance after an interim of thirteen years. It is visceral and emotive and lyrical. Here’s an excerpt…
FIRE burns hot and bright
FIRE dances and sways, slowly gyrating through our bodies
FIRE Like a harpist, plucking a sweet soul soothing song
FIRE ignites the marrow, consuming all the emotions
