Food & Travel Articles

February 17th, 2015 ·

Some travel writers get to explore far-off lands. My work is a little more pragmatic. For example, I recently wrote all of the copy for the in-room guest services directory for a boutique hotel in Colorado, as well as a series of online promotions targeted at travel agents.

I’ve also written my share of shorter food and travel-related articles and have included a few samples below. (Some are under my maiden name, Leslie Rosenberg.) I did a really snazzy piece on Montreal a few years back, but it ran in a newspaper, and I can’t figure out how to scan the sucker down to a readable size. Hopefully, these tasty tidbits will still whet your appetite.

Financial Writing

February 17th, 2015 ·

I have been writing for the financial services industry for more than 15 years, both as a marketing writer and a journalist. Most recently, I was a regular contributor to and, two of the top online resource centers for financial services professionals. As a journalist, I have also written about the world of financial services for Registered Rep, TICKER, and (now Reuters), among other media outlets. As a copywriter, I have written newsletters and white papers for numerous CFAs and investment advisory firms.

Here is a brochure I recently created for D.R. Saur, a local financial advisory firm.

Here is a blog article I wrote targeting insurance agency owners who want to sell their business.

Here is a white paper on outsourcing employee benefits administration.

And here is a website bio for a financial advisor in Montana.

A few of my recent (and less recent) financial articles are posted below. (Some are under my maiden name, Leslie Rosenberg.) I can send newsletter samples upon request.
