My newest article, “Helping Content: A Three-Part Approach to Content Strategy With Non-Profits,” is currently available in volume 5(1) of Communication Design Quarterly Review. In the article, Suzan Flanagan and I explain our approach to developing content strategy projects that help non-profits improve the way they interact with audiences online.
