Hi! I’m Nina McCollum. I’m an experienced marketing and public relations content writer. I am proud to live in Cleveland, Ohio. (Yes, Cleveland really does rock)

I have an endless thirst for learning and a passion for writing.  Whether you need B2B or B2C writing, or are looking for a creative writer, I write what you need and what your readers want. I enjoy gathering information from subject matter experts, conducting online research, investigating and reading to learn how best to produce impactful, engaging content reflecting the brand of each client, and in the voice that speaks to their audience and customers. I have taken coursework in SEO and strategic content marketing, and understand how to write for impact online and in print. No matter the audience, I strive to craft inviting and engaging copy, attention-grabbing headlines and creative stories that hook readers and add page views. I am always open to new clients and new experiences.  That’s what makes life exciting!

I am a strong project manager, and am adept at handling multiple clients, tasks and deadlines concurrently. I strive to turn in work ahead of deadline and under budget, whenever possible.

More about me: I am passionate about Cleveland. I am a TripAdvisor “Destination Expert” for both Cleveland and Put-in-Bay Ohio, and am the only woman moderator on the Urban Ohio forum, a site where we track and discuss projects taking place across the state. I’ve also been a contributor to our local Convention & Visitors Bureau guide. If you’re new to Cleveland, or want some recommendations, drop me a line anytime.

I am also a creative writer. On my site, you’ll find both my professional writing portfolio, and my freelance writing clips. My personal writing style is much more informal, but can give you a feel for my personality. My book, “Rockandrollmama’s Rants,” is a collection of my blog posts, and is now available on both paperback and Kindle.

Life takes us on many journeys, and I believe we have something to learn from each one. Thanks for stopping by on your journey. Let’s talk about how I can help you with your writing and content needs. Let me know what you want me to write for you, right now. Just say, “Nina, write now!”
