Feature Articles

You've got expertise to share. But neither the time nor the inclination to write. Let me ghost-write your feature articles. I'll interview you (and other information sources as appropriate), conduct associated background research, prepare a full manuscript and work with you on refinements. You get the byline when the article is published!

 

Need help getting the article published in a trade or professional publication? I can be your liaison with the editor to make sure you get published in the right place at the right time.  Email me at lbarlow416@gmail.com to learn more.

 

Take a look below to see the types of industries about which I've written.  Keep in mind that as a writer-for-hire, my name does not appear in the byline.
