writing samples


As with all writing assignments, great writing starts with doing serious, in-depth research. For a beer afficionado, what could be more enjoyable than "researching" beer!

Although I no longer drink beer due to health reasons, the editorial essays and reviews I wrote for Beer NW magazine were among the most fun as I was able to write in a fun, playful style appropriate for that audience.

Publisher Megan Flynn had this to say about working with me:

"Üma is such wonderful writer. She is both VERY professional—delivering quality writing requiring very little editing—and she's playful and fun to work with, too!"

for good

Okay, well, you can unsubscribe at any time, but I promise I'll only send you the good stuff never more than once monthly.

None of that bizarrely perky formulaic nurture sequence stuff.

Just good stories about good people doing good stuff. And maybe a little creative nonfiction now and then. Stuff that'll make you think, laugh, or cry—sometimes all at once.


I wanna read your stuff.
