General Interest

March 17th, 2008 ·

Although I consider myself a generalist, as far as my freelance writing goes, until recently I wrote relatively few articles intended for a general audience. Usually, I write articles for trade publications, or create marketing copy or Web content related to a specific industry. In the past two years, however, I have had the privilege of writing for several magazines, including SUCCESS, Dallas Style & Design, Atomic Ranch, Success from Home, and Thrivin’, among others. And, of course, I wrote a variety of features for ATOMIC Magazine, the award-winning quarterly that I ran as editor and publisher for four years.

Here are few samples of general interest articles, including an older piece that is my all time favorite, “24-Hour Party People.” (Leslie Rosenberg is my maiden name.) To get a quote on a project, please email me at leslie@lesliejthompson.com.

Medical Writing

March 17th, 2008 ·

A good journalist must be adept at gathering information and weaving it into a coherent story. It also helps to be a quick learner. If you’ve got those qualities nailed, then it doesn’t matter whether you’re writing about widget manufacturing, profiling a celebrity dog groomer, or recounting the history of space exploration. Medical writing is no different — it’s all about asking questions, and communicating information in a way that makes sense to the reader.

I’m not a brain surgeon, but I’ve interviewed several. I have also spoken with cancer patients and shared their experience and insights for the benefit of others struggling with the disease. I hope you enjoy these samples of my medical writing. (Some articles are under my maiden name, Leslie Rosenberg.)
