This website is a portfolio of documents and sample writing I’ve produced in my work, academic, and personal life. It includes a number of documents created during my time on the Bachelor of Arts in Professional and Technical Writing (PTW) major at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR). One of the requirements of the major was to develop a professional writing portfolio. Per the requirements of the portfolio, I selected documents to associate with one or more of the following six categories upon which I was evaluated:
- Research and Documentation
- Content Development
- Organizational Skills
- Professional Formatting
- Voice and Style
- Effective Copyediting
The selected documents were also holistically evaluated on whether they demonstrated a range of writing ability.
A great deal of work went in to developing my undergraduate portfolio; consequently, it has ultimately informed the layout of this entire online portfolio. Please select one of the categories above or on the landing page of this site. Within each category are several ‘Projects’. Each project contains one or more documents that I feel best demonstrate my skillset within the category. For each document, I attempt to explain the rationale behind my design decisions and how I met the conditions of the category. I hope I don’t confuse you: Please let me know if I do.
