Good writing isn't limited to a genre. Whether it's an essay on the race issues, an interview with singer-songwriter, a short-story, speechwriting, website copy, or even a corporate thought piece seeking to challenge the status quo, I believe a well-written word engages the mind and the heart.

And, based on recent trends and shifts in customer behavior, where is it heading? I did extensive researched and write what is now The State of Corporate Giving.
