I write all kinds of internal and external business and marketing communications for print and digital.
I specialize in trimming word count and using plain language to make your message understood.
I draw on 15+ years of teaching experience to help others be better writers and editors of their own work.
Nancy and I worked together at Project CAP where she reported to me. I could always count on Nancy to deliver well written and creative content while meeting demanding deadlines. She is willing to go above and beyond to complete a project and her legal background proved to be an asset as she drafted several contracts for our group. Nancy is a talented and hardworking employee.
I am the Executive Director of the Minnesota State Bar Association, and am writing to recommend Nancy Hupp who worked at the Minnesota State Bar Association for approximately seven years. She began as an editor and was later promoted to director of one of our most popular online services. Nancy was a valuable employee who contributed to the growth of our resources and established processes for the design and review of the forms we provide to members. She is/was an bright, analytical, and percept… Read more
As a writer and editor myself, I know the value of a second pair of eyes. I’ve hired Nancy to improve my articles, blog posts and CLE materials. Nancy consistently delivers a great edit that catches mistakes, asks great questions and adds creative ideas — helping me to elevate my game. She’s fast, smart and great to work with, and I will definitely hire her again.
Nancy took long legal-sized forms and came up with a style guide to make them more readable. These were the MSBA Real Property Forms, the purchase agreement forms for residential real estate. Very dense and wordy, and full of styles that make it more difficult to read. I was chair of the committee, and Nancy met with us over several meetings to show us how the changes would enhance the look of the document. Never lost her patience with us slow learners!
Nancy Hupp’s most enviable talent isn’t just an ability to write well, but an ability to write prolifically and compellingly in a demanding and often ambiguous environment. Her dedication to creating great work under any circumstances allowed her to produce some amazing content for Project CAP — including some of the most engaging concepts and mind-grabbing opening paragraphs I’ve ever read. My only regret is that her time with us was far too short.
I have worked with Nancy in her role as an employee of the Minnesota State Bar Association and more recently as a freelance lawyer. I recommend her without reservation. She is professional, personable, diligent, and smart. Feel free to contact me if you are considering hiring her for a freelance project or professional employment position.
Nancy is a wonderful writer—she writes precisely with a sense of humor and joy. She has the natural instincts of a great story-teller, and she brings that talent to all of her writing.
Nancy Burke Hupp is a very good writer and editor. She knows the value of a well-written phrase and is capable of writing on many different subjects. If you need a good editor or someone who can give you compelling content, Nancy is the person for you.
Nancy was able to learn our project needs quickly and synthesize down a number of documents for us. Her best asset is her ability to take lengthy, wordy documents and boil them down in simple, easy to read paragraphs. She is really great at taking a concept and giving you a simple way to describe it or an easy way to read. Furthermore, I appreciated her honest input and straightforward feedback.
