For businesses and organizations:
The benefit of working with an independent writing consultant is that services are customized to the needs of the client. With that in mind, here are a few approaches Dr. Martin has used with success in the past. They can be a useful jumping-off point for planning and discussion.
Group training sessions offer organization-specific content for immediate impact. Dr. Martin meets with you to get a sense of what kinds of issues you’re seeing and where you’d like to see improvement. With that information, she designs a hands-on workshop targeting those issues. Targeted training might tackle a specific internal document, or focus on outward-facing documents like op-eds or grant proposals. Trickier topics like “our institutional voice” can also be addressed in a targeted training session.
If outward-facing documents are your concern, you might consider a communications audit. With your mission and goals in mind, Dr. Martin digs into your public-facing materials and recommends modifications to increase effectiveness, clarity, usability, and impact. She can also work directly with communications staff to fine-tune targeted writing skills and identify new ways of reaching audiences.
Private consultations provide project-specific support for both staff and leadership. Dr. Martin works one-on-one with staff members to develop effective writing habits while improving current projects. She offers on-site appointments and drop-in hours to meet client needs.
