Janice K. Hanson has extensive experience in marketing for the performing arts, which has included:
- Writing, editing, and proofreading brochures, program books, publications, and press releases
- Promoting concerts and events through targeted strategies while maintaining brand identity
- Web site content management and site navigation (including two “Best of the Web” awards from the Rochester Business Journal)
- Writing and HTML design for email newsletters, blogs, and social media
- Photography, media and public relations, and event management
- Graphic design for flyers, programs, brochures, and advertising; as well as print production and project management
As a freelance proofreader and editor, Janice has an “eagle eye” for detail and consistently applies style sheets to help you to develop top-notch promotional materials, publications, and websites. In addition to reviewing spelling and grammar and double-checking facts and web links, she proofs for content, always on the lookout for the piece of information that is missing from your materials, or phrasing that is unclear.
Plus, her experience in graphic design, desktop publishing, and print production gives her an edge in reviewing layout and design. She is used to juggling multiple projects at once, and meets all her deadlines.
In January 2012, Janice added booking and organizing folk music concerts for the Golden Link Folk Singing Society to her list of skills. She also is fluent in French with a Bachelor’s Degree in French and Linguistics from Middlebury College in Vermont.
