Read the invitation that is an offer to elevate you, your message and your modus operandi.

I wanted to take English and do something magical with it. The terms were how it is used, spoken and written. Out of that desire I have developed McIntoshLinguistics, an educational and grammatical editing business for manuscripts. Interestingly, I created the business and modelled it to meet a personal need that became apparent to me while I studied writing and narratology. Contemporaneously, I wrote and self-published my first novel, What’s in a Name. In fact, immediately after completing that process I wrote my second, the soon-to-be-published The Perfumed Shroud.

Introduction

As a writer and the owner of an educational and grammatical editing business for manuscripts, I have taken English and done something magical with it. The terms are how it is used, spoken and written. In relation to the foregoing, I would like to demonstrate how my qualifications would fit a leadership role.

I started out in administration in the fields of healthcare, project management and database development. Since 2016, I have been working to further develop myself as a fiction writer while working on my grammatical and linguistic pursuits, which turned into an educational and grammatical editing business for manuscripts. Also, I have now become a published author.

My experience and qualifications demonstrate that I am adept at meeting business communication and brand development needs. Storytelling is one key strategy used to bolster and foster both needs. With an entrepreneurial mindset, I take a deliberate and strategic approach to also foster a positive image. The goal, and usually the result, is innovative and resourceful engagement with audiences and clients. Such approach and engagement usually involve or require a practical experience in media relations. This includes crafting electronic press kits and reporting. My own academic and creative work involves demonstrating a level of storytelling mastery through the application of various narrative devices. These include direct speech, reported speech and different types of communication strategies to create compelling storytelling.

Additionally, my writing and editing abilities demonstrate proficiency, excellence, autonomy, rational and even suprarational thinking, and also critical thinking. These characteristics further allow me to be able to share and elevate others through what I have learned, including a heuristic technique and approach to learning English academically and a process-method to editing, both of which I have developed to create trenchant writing. I would be pleased if you invited me to show you the potential that is inherent in elevating your organization, your message and your modus operandi.
