About Darren

I have a Master's degree in English from Syracuse University, and taught six classes in composition to freshmen and sophomores while I earned my degree. After graduating I continued to teach composition at Coon Rapids Community College and The Brown Institute. I emphasize listening to your own voice, instead of writing what you think other people want to see, which ironically leads to more original, more powerful writing. I emphasize the writing process too, from developing ideas through free writing to shaping them into a draft and a final product, discovering what you have to say along the way.

I have used these methods myself in my own writing. For two years I wrote all of the content in a quarterly employee magazine for a national company, from feature articles to interviews with the CEO, to profiles of customers. In that job I also wrote the script for the CEO's quarterly employee conference calls, which lasted an hour. Since then, I have written for both nonprofit and consumer publications as a freelance writer. I have both the teaching and writing experience to guide you in your writing from the beginning to the end of the process.
