Answer Key, Answer McKie

If you’re a college, university, school or education provider, I’m your freelance institutional support. I create features, newsletters, eblasts, blogs, bios, websites, marketing materials, press releases, media alerts, scripts, speeches.

I write about education and nonprofits, public relations and marketing, as well as the scholastic aspects of design, activism, travel, culture and the humanities including film, theater, museums.

I’ve been an educator and college lecturer for decades, in critical reading, creative writing, and public relations, so I bring experience from the trenches to your writing projects. I help execute everything English on the page and on the stage.
