Welcome to my Portfolio Erin L. Delaney
About Me I love variety, challenges, team work, and telling stories from unique angles. And I’ve got quite the eclectic writing background to prove it- as Walt Whitman writes, "I am large, I contain multitudes." For the last four years, I’ve balanced being a freelance writer with being an adjunct college instructor. I’ve prepped composition and literature curriculum writing and teaching, while writing poetry or blogging as well as writing copy, and editing others work and resumes. I especially have enjoyed creating copy for websites, interviewing others, creating unique journalism features, as well as engaging my classrooms through current events and pop culture related topics. Read on to take a look at some of my work.
MY WORK IN ACTION Henry David Thoreau writes, ”Simplify, Simplify.” The most effective words are said simply, tactfully, and accurately, and I believe that writing and performing poetry has prepared me best in the creation of meaningful and powerful writing.

Lord & Taylor, Wilkes-Barre: The Studio Pulse To empower departments to effectively communicate with one another while keeping fast-paced deadlines, I wrote and edited a monthly newsletter that has further connected the team while clarifying inter-department information.
One of my favorite aspects of writing is the diversity. I’ve interviewed authors, plastic surgeons, spa and salon owners, nude art models, mattress store owners, dance instructors, motivational speakers, musicians, and actors to produce business profiles, copy, human interest pieces, and articles for business websites, weeklies such as: The Weekender and Philadelphia City Paper, and national publications such as: The Woman's Newspaper. “Thanks for all your hard work and creativity.” – Marshall Partington, M.D. FACS “Erin consistently delivers written pieces within the specified scope and on time.” –Vatrice Chestnut, Birmingham Woman’s Newspaper
Freelance Copywriting Product Description Copy for graphic designer. “I worked briefly with Erin at Sakari Salon. She helped me with a web project, writing web content for the site. Erin's work on Sakari's bios was creative. She helped edit and reflect each person's unique qualities. I would definitely work with her again.” -Valerie Wyde Eyed Design Studio
As an adjunct college instructor and a book editor, deadlines and shifting priorities is a must. Researching, checking information accuracy, editing and proofreading, and then communicating that material effectively and engaging the right audience is of utmost importance. “Erin knows her stuff! She manages to fix the things that need fixing in a manuscript without losing the author’s voice. A rare talent.” – Paul Barretta, Owner of Talent Clearing House, Inc. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Do-the- Devils-Work-for-Him-by-Amy-Sciarretto-Rick- Florino/
