I write



In the last ten years I’ve written hundreds (thousands?) of pieces published both in print and online, mostly for corporate clients. The good thing about corporate communications? No shortage of work. The not as good thing? You usually don’t get bylined for what you write. And when you write for internal publications, you can’t share a link with potential clients. I’ve saved a few PDFs below and linked where possible.

If what’s below doesn’t align with your needs, I’m willing to bet I can show you a sample that will. Email at dboothsummers at gmail dot com.
