I write all kinds of internal and external business communications, as well as blog posts and website copy.
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.
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…
Nancy Hupp has the gift of writing about complex subjects with great clarity, as well as writing about simple subjects and making them memorable. Nancy writes in a strong and winning ‘voice’. That voice, combined with her excellent technical skills, makes her work, and will make your project, both distinctive and a pleasure to read.
I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy through two different associations. First with Entrepreneurial Advantage while working on Project CAP, and then later when I sub-contracted some work to her through my current position with Insurance Marketing Partners. I’ve found Nancy to be very professional and easy to work with. She has a good understanding of the insurance business and can write good copy. I have no reservations in recommending Nancy to others.
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!
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.
I have had the pleasure working with Nancy Hupp in various capacities over the past decade. Most recently, Nancy was my colleague at the Minnesota Bar Association where she directed practicelaw.org. Her organizational and writing skills are superb and they kept the website and its resources current and relevant.
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 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 captured the essence of what we were trying to communicate. We wanted to streamline our message by keeping the critical information and eliminating what was unnecessary and repetitive. It’s hard to do that with your own work—someone on the outside can take a fresh view and Nancy did that.
