I wrote all three articles on this first sample and received particularly positive feedback for the Shakespeare piece:
In this sample of a complete newsletter, I wrote the short page one items “Houseplant Hygiene,” “Fresh Fabrics,” “Sleep Tight and Save Energy,” and “Enjoy a Guilt-Free Dip” (my first title suggestion was “Let’s Go Skinny Dipping!”). On page two, I wrote “When the Earth Blows Its Top,” “The Big One,” and “Bring in the Bright”; on page three I wrote “Tennis, Anyone?”
For the June newsletter, on page one I wrote “Keep Cool.” Page two features my articles “Enjoy a Safe Summer” and “Cool Summer Side Dishes”; I also wrote “The Evolution of Zoos” on page three.
In one of my previous jobs, I wrote the supporting materials for a new business division that I helped create.

The only thing more discombobulating for a teen than falling in love is realizing he’s not entirely human.
Some kids hate going to school. Other kids will kill to get there.
Take a look at my recent novel, a YA horror tale that will slither its way into your brain!
