Marcia Clemmitt

Do you need a writer with a passion for translating complex subjects into engaging, down-to-earth prose? I've written about health care, medicine, science, education, politics, Internet issues and business for audiences ranging from first graders to science PhDs. As a writer and editor I've met hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly deadlines. As a high school teacher turned writer, I embrace this motto -- If I'm Bored, Readers Will Be Too.
