She’s a big believer in writing with personality…
All that time spent in newsrooms comes in handy. Sheri zeroes in on effective story angles, and customizes pitches for media outlets. She writes press releases in story format, which often results in the client’s message being published verbatim. Sheri’s also a fan of “short form” writing. She would love if you asked for help with a headline or a tweet.
One of Sheri’s favorite things about working with Laura Bishop Communications is the variety of projects. She helps manage the firm’s bond referendum campaigns, which involve just about every project in the communications spectrum, from website content to video production and social media strategy. These are rewarding challenges for Sheri, who distills complex concepts into clear and engaging messages.
Sheri also enjoys working with schools on everyday communication needs, as well as specialized projects such as tuition programs.
Sheri loves words (and sometimes talks to herself as she sorts through her mental thesaurus to find just the right one). But for her, it’s more about the feeling that words create. She wants to make sure messages strike the right tone, and convey the key themes of competence, concern, and compassion.
This type of writing requires nuance and sensitivity. In other words, being nice doesn’t hurt!
