Welcome to my professional website and portfolio. Here’s where you’ll find a small sampling of my work in various incarnations over the years, from editing to copywriting. I’ve done a lot of different things, so I’m adept at writing for various audiences, formats, and messages. Whether I’m writing website copy for an innovative iPad-centered virtual learning interface or a travel article, each job and assignment is an opportunity to create something new, exciting, and engaging.
One of my first jobs was as an assistant editor at the Chicago Reader, once one of the finest alternative newspapers in the country. The position essentially functioned as journalism boot camp. I learned proofreading symbols, the art of the lede, the nuts and bolts of fact-checking, how to tell a story, and so much more. I’m forever grateful for receiving the gift of such a rigorous introduction to good writing and editing. It’s paid off in so many ways for me, professionally and personally.
I’m happy to provide more examples of my work or to expand on my professional experience. Contact me at heatherkenny [at] earthlink dot net.
