My name is Heather Larson and I've been a freelance writer for more than two decades. I've published articles in consumer and trade magazines as well as regional publications. Besides writing articles, I also create the text for brochures, advertisements, press releases and newsletters. Here is what some of my clients say about me.
Heather has been not only one of our favorite writers to work with, but also an important media relations ambassador for the San Juan Islands. She is always on the lookout for the next great media coverage opportunity for the Islands, in the travel niches we care most about. She produces (frequently!), is great to collaborate with, and tells our stories the way we love to read them. Heather's follow-through on sending clips and thank you notes to those she has worked with is always appreciated and makes my job all the easier and more pleasurable. Thank you, Heather! —Robin Jacobson, Public Relations Manager, San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau
