Hello, I am Erin McCarthy Holliday.12688181_10156517552190015_7376289367877213032_n

Writer, athlete, cycle instructor and home renovation warrior with a heart of Pittsburgh gold.

I studied journalism at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, and I am now a JD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

Over the course of my personal, professional, and academic life, I have cultivated a passion for policy and advocacy, an insatiable commitment to fighting for justice, and a deep-rooted calling to fight for the opportunity of others. After four years as a professional writer and journalist, these things led me to law school in 2017.

My mission remains to help my clients find their voice through storytelling. In this niche, I quickly learn that this kind of work is a unique yet refreshing asset in a noisy industry. I spend as much of my time researching as writing—conducting in-depth interviews, reviewing journal articles and current research on particular subjects, and studying my client to best understand their perspectives, passions, problems and how to solve them.

I can prove my hard work through awards, projects, and triathlon medals, but I’d rather you just talk to the people who know me as a writer. For references, call or email, and I’ll point you to people who will say nice things about me.

We also have a home renovation blog: chrisanderinrenowarriors.wordpress.com.

In the end, there is only one way to write well: from the heart.

Some things I can help you with:

  • Information architecture
  • Policy writing
  • Web, digital, video copywriting
  • Blogging
  • Ghostwriting
  • Copyediting
  • Etc., just ask!
