Want an exceptional writer?

Cathie Ericson, writer

Want an exceptional writer?  Need someone who creates copy that represents the individual dimension and voice of your company or publication? Then let’s talk!

Cathie Ericson, writer, at 503.539.6772; Cathie@CathieEricsonWriter.com.

From my diverse experience writing everything from case studies for Fortune 500 companies to articles for women’s publications and websites, I can speak in the tone that your audience needs. Each piece I write is designed to positively represent your brand, whether you are a business looking for content marketing or a publication needing a business or service article.

As a voracious consumer of news – through social media, blogs and old-school newspaper and magazine reading — I can identify relevant stories and create original content that is timely and practical.

My clients inevitably hire me again and again – they love my ideas, execution, spot-on writing, attention to detail, timeliness, creativity, attitude and, yes, personality: no reason we can’t all have fun while we’re doing great work!

My job is to make my client’s or editor’s job easier. Find out how I can help you today!

I have worked with Cathie for several years and am impressed with her deep understanding of how to write with her audience in mind. She has created content for audiences from “mom bloggers” to food and healthcare writers to business audiences and has a knack for immediately distilling the key story idea into concise, attention-getting and effective content. On top of her writing skills, she is unusually responsive and quick to turn around my projects.

As editor of Metro Parent Magazine, I have found Cathie to be a talented writer who delivers well-written articles that both engage and inform her readers. She generates interesting story ideas, meets her deadlines and always maintains an upbeat attitude. It’s a pleasure working with her.

I’ve hired Cathie to write several freelance articles for California Real Estate magazine. She is easy to work with and delivers her assignments on time, which is important in this business. Her stories are clean, well-written, and need very little editing. I’d highly recommend Cathie for other freelance writing work.
