Freelance Writing + Event Planning
Most of the freelance writing work I have done is under a pseudonym, so I can’t link to it here. Believe me, it’s real (*wink*). I like to manage social media campaigns and write for interesting businesses or projects. As for event planning, I am skilled at working in Detroit’s neighborhoods, activating park spaces, and engaging with small businesses.
