Shawnie Hamer is an American writer, editor, and community organizer living in France. When she isn’t writing, she is traveling or eating cheese. She wants to be Stevie Nicks when she grows up.

I write content that captures your unique voice

& gets results.

Cookie-cutter writing won’t do you any favors. Your business has something special to offer, something you’ve worked incredibly hard to share with the world, and your content should reflect that.

I believe in writing that inspires audiences towards deliverables, not text that cons or smooth talks. Customer loyalty is secured by honesty, presence, and personality. It’s my goal to amplify your brand journey with integrity so that consumers can’t help but fall in love with your products and services.

With a BA in English and Creative Writing, MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics, and over 10 years of experience writing and editing marketing, educational, and entertainment content and copy for a diverse clientele, my work specializes in both the art of storytelling and the skill of maintaining a competitive edge.

As a community organizer and former manager, I am trained at collaborating with and leading diverse creatives, both in-person and remotely. I value inclusive and goal-oriented spaces where creativity thrives and objectives are surpassed.

Let’s get to work.
