Story
Tagline
I write grant proposals and advocate for nonprofits dedicated to the wildlife conservation, the arts and education. I'm also an avid spinner of fiber and knitter.
Introduction
I advocate for nonprofit organizations as a freelance grant writer and dream of owning a homestead powered by water, wind and the sun where Buff Orpington chickens free-range, Cormo sheep graze, cats and dogs feel safe, and my spinning wheel sits by a wood stove.

In my professional life, I write grant proposals, newsletter articles, web & print copy, press releases, blog posts and grant narratives for the non-profit sector. I specialize in arts, education, sustainable living, environmental and wildlife conservation issues.

When I'm not turning large amounts of intel into readable bits for granting panels, you can find me walking in nature with my dog, working on my fiber arts business plan or at my spinning wheel with cats and dog nearby.

Check out my blog Spinning Whimsical for a chronicle of my adventures..

Any competent freelance grant writers out there with good teaching skills? Here is a gig in the Boston area you may be interested in. Might be a good way of making contacts too.

Oooo, I just got an email from Twitter notifying me that my account is suspended. No reason given - actually the email didn't have any content. The account seems to be working fine. I suspect spam.

Anyone else get a notification?

Shameless plug and then I'll leave you good people alone to write, spin, knit, design and homestead.

I started a blog called Cricklewood Farm a while back, and I've decided to expand it into a full website. It explains my project, will have pictures and video, and also a bookstore. I'll continue to blog (I've been lax of late), but I'm hoping that the website will be a place on the 'net to visit if you want a farm fix (I have chickens, cats and a dog - someday I'll add a cow, sheep and guinea fowl), yarn fix (I spin and knit), and garden fix (I don't have any gnomes).

The Boston Symphony Orchestra is looking for a Stewardship Writer and Coordinator. Before you creative types write this off, I'll tell you I've written stewardship letters and reports and it can be very interesting. It's also a good way to earn a living as a writer and you gain important skills that may help your writing (I wrote "special" letters for a university president - I learned very quickly how to craft correspondence that was warm, meaningful and personal without becoming casual).

That makes for a very cute argument, and about as logical as many people's arguments.
