ER nurses, medical scientists, executive directors of charities: They don’t question why they get up in the morning. They know they’re making a difference. When we work with our nonprofit clients, we get a little taste of how that must feel. It feels good. Like we’re some kind of pen-wielding superheroes. Changing the world one letter at a time! Can we get a cape?

“Dan and The Hired Pens are a writing resource I turn to again and again. No matter what I ask for, I get gorgeous marketing content that engages my audiences and accomplishes my business goals. Some of our projects together have been quite large, involving interviews with numerous VIPs and at least one Nobel laureate. Dan managed flawlessly. As long as he’s in business, I’ll continue to work with him!”
