Writing Portfolio

Publications & Presentations

My writing career has meandered a bit, starting out in the academic world with several conference presentations and published articles while I was in graduate school and then while I was teaching at several colleges and universities.

Once I moved on to focus on my career in fundraising though, grant proposals and fundraising materials have not been my only writing projects. I have had several different blogs over the years, mainly for fun, and you can read a lot of personal essays and book reviews in different sections of this website.

I have also been asked to give presentations on fundraising in a few different contexts, including a couple of webinars for the statewide professional association Maryland Nonprofits.
