In 2020, I’m focusing on grant writing to power positive community action. Do you have a great idea and need to seek funding? I can research the right grant opportunities and help you construct your grant application.
Additionally, I write creative technical copy for advertising, blogs, brochures, commercials, newsletters, press releases, product descriptions, proposals, publications, resumes, technical manuals, and websites.
I offer a diverse range of communication services for $20 an hour and have worked in the media 20 years.
YES, YOU CAN buy just one hour of my time to chat, or take me out to coffee or lunch. I love to share ideas - it's what I do.
I proofread, fact-check, and revise articles, business plans, essays, grant proposals, legal documents, manuscripts, pamphlets, promotional copy, technical writing, resumes, reports, websites, and white papers. Books I've edited in traditional print and digital e-book formats include a range of fiction and nonfiction subjects including biography, business law, health, science, and self-improvement.
Not only do I proofread, I offer plenty of guidance. First, I ask clarifying questions so we nail the purpose of the work. Next, I'll guide you through the revision process from rough draft to final copy. And I always keep an open line of communication through free calls and emails in case you ever want to chat.

I'm Taryn, the brain behind Affordable Media.
Unlike most pricey creatives,
I believe quality should be affordable.
Not your typical
After two decades working in the media, I've developed the creative foresight to get people hyped about your business. A versatile brainstormer, I supply the ideas, solutions, and labor for a diverse range of creative projects including free, low-cost, and guerrilla marketing campaigns, traditional advertising, creative collaborations, lead generating, customer acquisition, project management, and public relations.
I'm unique because I specialize in "non-advertising" strategies: personal, thoughtful interactions to engage your customers. Put another way, I give your digital brand a human touch. I don't specialize in social media. My focus is to design interactions within the community to get people talking about your product, service, or brand.
My skills are wide here: To sell your idea I consider advertising, digital presence, operations, sales, and publicity. Start by hiring me to brainstorm a list of alternatives to market your business or, if you already have a plan, I'll lend my creativity and skills to make it a reality.
Affordable Media's Ethics
1. Everyone has a unique gift
to give the world.
2. Be honest, all the time.
3. Kindness to all
is more important than profit.
4. Money is a tool used for good
& to help others.
5. Treat people as you wish
to be treated.

Need a creative infusion? A jump start? Motivation? Working with a partner provides accountability and shares the burden of running a business.
