Writing Portfolio

I’ve written professionally for more than 20 years, including 11 years as a weekly newspaper columnist. My articles have appeared in a variety of newspapers, magazines and online media.

I also do extensive marketing work on a contract basis for business clients. This includes everything from public relations, branding and re-branding, blogging, social media, newsletters,  press releases and biographical materials such as CVs and resumes. I’ve also been hired by companies to write nominations for prestigious corporate awards as well as grant applications for non-profits.

Below are some samples of my freelance writing work. I’ve covered stories in the education, military, medical and business fields, just to name a few. If you’d like to see a sample of a specific field of interest, email me at romi.wittman@gmail.com.
