Kimzyn Campbell: “As Karin’s editor at Third Coast Review, I am happy to say that her works as an arts and culture writer is professional, punctual and nothing less than inspired. Her knowledge of theater is instrumental in the comprehensive reviews she writes for and she produces thorough and meticulous work, making my job easier. I highly recommend you hire her.”
Dr. Andrew Fleck: “Karin is a really talented writer and an energetic spark plug. Her writing has life and vitality, with a great range beyond the kind of academic writing she produced in my classes. She knows how to craft a message, how to turn a phrase, how to craft an arc. Her writing has power: it punches the reader in the gut with emotional intensity and lifts the reader with its optimism. I love to read whatever she writes. Karin is also energized by the politics of our day. She may have a degree in English, but would also be successful in a communications department: she knows how to find the right buttons to get people motivated to act. She would be a powerhouse in a political consulting firm or a public relations outfit. She’s got talent. Karin has mastered the word. Not some inert word in the dictionary. She knows how to make words work. Relying on Karin to make words sparkle is the best decision anyone can make.”
Julia Borcherts: “We hold you in high regard at the Chicago Tribune. I was trained using your press releases as models. My job would be much easier if you were to represent everyone.”
Jenny Lawton: “I feel so lucky to have had the chance to work with you. Thank you for being endlessly accommodating and patient, for always finding me the resources (and minutia) I begged for. You are an amazing resource. Thank you for making my job easy and fun.
You’re a tremendous asset to the organizations you assist.”
Dr. Denise La Grassa: “Karin is an active creative thinker and formulator of exactly the right message for the given project or event. Her ability to synthesize that message quickly and help make connections to people who can build your audience is invaluable for me as an artist. Her years of experience writing and connecting with the public are invaluable. When it comes to hiring millennials with plenty of knowledge of the latest social platforms, the latest tech whatever, all good, but it comes down to the story. How do you tell it? Do you know your audience? If you have spent your time connecting with tech to make community engagement happen, how is that connection really human? Karin has the heart, the warmth, and the years of experience with real people, real face-to-face situations, and she’s super-bright and always on-time, on budget, on deadline.”
