Rachel Korowitz
 
Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm your classic Jill-of-all-trades. Online, I've developed tone, voice, branding elements, and overall site copy. Since I have a strong research background, I've covered topics as varied as entertainment, health/wellness, real estate, lifestyle, humor, and food. Additionally, I've researched and written newsletters, targeted email campaigns, SEO-savvy blog posts, advertorials, brochures, catalogues, video/TV/webinar scripts, slideshows, print articles, press releases, biographies, firm profiles, ad copy, social media content, quizzes, B-to-B presentations, and marketing copy.

Work Samples
 
WE  
(WE)
For Black History Month, WE asked me to create a page honoring three outstanding African-American women.
As WE launched it's reality series "Skating's Next Star," I created a comedic look at the highlights (and lowlights) of this glamorous sport.
When WE and USA Today joined forces to help those struggling with weight issues, I created a light-hearted but informative quiz to aid those concerned about their own health and fitness levels: http://www.wetv.com/uploads/WeightlossChallenge/quiz/
SuperLawyers  
For the past several years, I've written professional profiles for SuperLawyers and SuperDoctors. These articles showcase outstanding professionals (much like Van Wagner & Wood) who are honored by their peers.
Resume  
AMC  
AMC's homepage updates multiple times a week. I was responsible for drafting short, pithy module taglines.
On a monthly basis, I wrote fun, light copy pushing to on-air stunts for newsletter recipients.
When AMC transitioned into creating slideshows around its "Hollywood Icon" stunts, I developed copy and selected photos for multi-page online flip-books.
As part of AMC's "Movie of the Month" on-air franchise, I created complimentary original copy for all associated pages and online promotions.
Independent Work  
(Dena Marie Plaza/REA)
REA, an agency specializing in real estate concerns, approached me to work on a project for Dena Marie Plaza, a top-tier retail space in Kingston, NY. Our clients wanted copy that was professional, elegant, and appealing to high-end retailers.

As promotion for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, The Week tapped me to create related content.
