I’ve designed this website to provide you, the potential client, an easily navigated portfolio that enables you to quickly access writing samples.
A little bit of background about myself: My name is Dan Harvey, and I am a full-time freelance writer/editor with 25 years’ experience.
I began my career as a print journalist – working as a sports reporter, news reporter, columnist and newspaper editor.
During this early career period, I also freelanced for local entertainment magazines and weekly sports publications. I even spent evenings at a local television station, helping the sports director cover local sports beats and contributing an occasional on-air feature.
From there, I ventured into magazine publishing, serving as the managing editor of a national medical trade journal and as a contributing editor for three other medical journals.
Seeking more experience and other challenges, I then entered the field of corporate communications and business copywriting, working as a subcontractor for a commercial communications agency. I wrote and produced corporate newsletters, wrote text for books on engineering work processes, helped develop training modules, and turned out copy for various collateral materials (press releases, posters, book jackets, brochures, etc.).
Working as a subcontractor broadened my horizons, put me in touch with clients on a global scale, taught me what I needed to know about electronic communications, and greatly enhanced my computer skills. I felt ready to embark on a full-fledged freelance writing career.
That was 21 years ago. Since then, I’ve worked with medical publishers, healthcare systems, communications agencies, websites, nonprofit organizations, consumer and trade magazines, book publishers, newspapers and small and large businesses.
Specifically, I’ve worked with:
Trade and Consumer magazines: Industry Today, Food & Drink Quarterly, LowCarb Woman, CarbLite, Journal of Longevity, Life Extension, Current Health, Radiology Today, Super Lawyer, HealthPulse, NursingPlus, YourHealth Monthly, among others.
Businesses: The Dupont Company, Positive Publications, the Christiana Care Health System, GE Medical, Great Valley Publishing, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Albert Einstein Health Network, Hollister Publications, as well as newspapers and commercial communications agencies.
