Hello, I am Erin McCarthy Holliday.
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
- Etc., just ask!
