In 2013, I joined the steering committee for Gender Personal. I played a major role in writing and editing web and print copy for the organization, which uses art and poetry exhibits to raise awareness of gender—in particular, transgender issues.I became well-versed in the organization’s style and approach to its subject matter, and used my writing skills to create content that was concise and scannable while making the tone both compelling and conversational.
