Words are everything. They create stories. That's how we learn and remember things. I am a communications professional/writer who has spent 30+ years writing for all forms of media. Newspapers have asked me to write articles for special publications. I have also submitted articles on behalf of other organizations. That I like. I've been asked to write columns for magazines. That, I really like. I recently published an entertaining, self-help book, "Lights, Camera, Passion." It's a collection of stories woven together in an inspiring format. That, I love. My specialty, however, may be visual writing. I have been a writer for TV for 30+ years. I understand the concise, punchy copywriting style of writing that works well for TV. I appreciate matching words to visuals. I have written reports on murder and mayhem. I have written stories on movie stars and mirth. I have also produced, conceived and written special programming. "Utah Eats" is a 1/2 hour local program highlighting local foods and restaurants that create them. It was an original project, with two episodes which I oversaw from start to finish. I know how to let both words and pictures tell a story. I know when to let video tell a story and when to create words to do their part. There is a skill to know how to weave words and video or images together. That's a skill I have learned over 30 years. I also have had experience writing for social media. I conduct workshops on how to engage readers though digital platforms. It is more than just handing out information or details. Successful social media harnesses the art of storytelling on all platforms. Those stories must be told differently, but it still comes down to storytelling. Storytelling works on digital platforms. It works with audio/visual productions. It works with newspapers, magazines and books. It works because of words.
