Writing for environmental, societal, and economic sustainability
What separates humanity from all other life on Earth? Perhaps it’s found in our ability to create. Look around and see art, scientific achievement, and the advancements arising from innovative exploration.
We create because that’s our nature. We create in imitation of the creation of our cosmos.
I create with words. Hence, my website’s title: Because of Words. My subject matter? The environment, society, and the economy. Under the social category, I explore customs, culture, and current events and how they affect us all. Under the environmental umbrella, I explore the state of the planet and our natural resources. In the economy grouping, I consider financial sectors and our systems of interaction and exchange. Through it all, I celebrate our will to grow beyond the present issues and to create a better life for all living things.
As you browse my website, I hope you'll find reading these explorations to be as informative, compelling, and interesting as I've found them during the research and writing phase.
And, by the way, I do write for others. Interested in having me collaborate with you on a writing project? Shoot me an email, call, or leave a message on my contact page.
You speak; I’ll listen. Together, we’ll make sure that your message gets the attention it deserves.

Ever had your memory fail you with something you absolutely needed to remember? It’s a frustrating experience that plays gotcha if you’re not careful. Most of us occasionally get tongue-tied, or perhaps brain-tied is more like it. A work journal can become your new best friend.
Here’s your opportunity to download a fillable PDF work journal. Also, you may want to read my article “Your work in progress: Keeping a business journal.”
Articles, papers, blog posts, SEO
You set the topic and direction. Or we can collaborate. Do you need new articles with a fresh viewpoint, blog posts, or updates to existing web content? Search engine optimization (SEO)? Or maybe you haven’t yet entered the internet world. Let’s get started.
Listen and learn all kinds of things
I’ve interviewed people from backgrounds very different from my own: entrepreneurs, politicians and their families, artists and musicians, new age practitioners, next-door neighbors. I’ll find the people who can answer the important questions and then let them tell the story that is theirs alone.
Newsletters, leaflets, and flyers
Newsletters sustain the relationships that keep you in business; brochures help to create interest in your services and products; those flyers spread your word quickly.
Odds and ends
Have you ever had anyone correct your grammar even as you speak? It occasionally happens to my husband. From copy editing to manuscript revisions, I can correct your writing for grammatical errors, edit it for readability, or rewrite it from the get-go.
Do you need answers, evidence, and background? As a kid, I spent hours browsing encyclopedias. I will bring that same passion to your research project. And I promise I’ll go far beyond Wikipedia in the pursuit of truth.
You know your team could brilliantly complete a project if only your proposal is selected. Let’s show your potential clients how your past work matches their needs, and maximize your staff strengths with convincing resumes and curriculum vitae.
It’s not my specialty, but I love basic graphic gigs and can throw together a quick layout that grabs attention. If it’s beyond my skill set, I'll say so and gladly suggest experts who can help.
An editor I worked with wrote . . .
"Cassie Journigan has spent a career in writing. She has written both technical and news articles for corporate and public audiences. I have worked with her as editor and reviewed numerous articles for publication.
"Cassie is an excellent writer. She has a strong sense of the importance of good, clear writing and an innate sense of the impact of her writing on her audiences, whether public or internal. She is sensitive to the backgrounds and values of the community that is her audience and is aware of what is appropriate and inappropriate for that audience . . . " Larry Schnell
Larry writes for newspapers, has authored books, and served as adjunct professor at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communication. I was a staff writer under his editorship at the Levy County Journal.
