My name is Patrice A. Kelly and I’ve been writing freelance for over 20 years. My experience is primarily in business trade journalism, but I’m always up for something new!
My favorite hobby is reading. But unfortunately, I couldn’t make a living curled up in an easy chair engrossed in a novel. (Darn it!) So I decided to try writing, first as editor of my college newsletter, and then for a couple of local newspapers.
That led to writing for local business magazines and then to national business magazines, mostly in the minority space. Local businesses started seeing my bylines and asked me to write for them. I ended up starting a two-person agency offering writing and PR services to enterprises and nonprofits.
Over the years, I’ve added other skills to my repertoire like production expertise, layout, design, graphics, and website content management and maintenance. I use MS Office and Adobe Creative Suite.
I love working with CMS platforms like WordPress, Wix, Weebly, and Vistaprint. I’ve even tried my hand at a little animation with Anime Studio.
Often, I’ve fallen into the null space of social media for hours on end. Sometimes I dream about Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (not sure if that’s a good thing.) Email marketing is another skill I sort of fell into, using Constant Contact, MailChimp and Aweber for clients and myself.
I’m available for contract, remote or in-house projects, full or part time. I’m not the introverted brooding writer type. I love people and talking –– a lot! I’m curious about many things and love working with a committed team.
So if I can help you, just let me know.
