If your writer doesn't get you, neither will your customers.
I provide professional writing, editing, and proofreading services to businesses, nonprofits, and creative agencies of all sizes. Just as important as the work is how I go about it.
I listen, question, and study — then shape messaging that speaks to your audience, solves problems, and expresses the value at the heart of your organization, product, or service.
Get in touch.
I'm John Carr. Since 2000, I've specialized in advertising and business writing as well as proofreading, naming/branding, university development marketing, and internal communications. I live and work in Portland, Oregon, though my clients are all over the map. And I teach copywriting in the Digital Design program at the Tulane School of Professional Advancement.

If your industry isn't on the list, contact me anyway.
