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 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.
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 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.
I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy on several major writing projects. On each one of them, she was consistently thorough and extremely detailed. Nancy makes it her goal to understand not just the “what” but also the “why” behind every assignment. She is sharp and focused, and she cares deeply about delivering great content. Plus, she’s simply a delight to work with.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
