Businesses & Nonprofits

Everyone thinks they’re a writer. But maybe that isn’t the best use of everyone’s time.

Good writing takes lots of time. Unless you’ve had lots of practice. That’s where I come in.

Sometimes an organization needs someone to just get the project done (on time and under budget).

Sometimes what’s needed is some word-smithing beyond your current capabilities.

I offer editorial assistance in areas such as web and social media content, intranet content, speech writing, employee and marketing communications.

Connecting in the marketplace or with your donor-base today requires creating real conversations that inform and inspire. I can help you talk in fresh and engaging ways.  Plus, I’m fun to work with.

What clients have said about my work:


“I had the pleasure of working with Gillian when she served as the managing editor for Ashoka’s 500-page annual publication, which profiles social entrepreneurs around the world that Ashoka supports. She was both passionate and meticulous about the quality of the publication. And we enjoyed some great conversations along the way.”

–Karin Hillhouse, Founding Partner & Special Projects, Ashoka’s Changemakers
