ABOUT

Hi, I'm Caren. I began my career in radio and TV but quickly discovered my gift and love of writing, a gift that has provided well for me and caused me to wonder that people actually agree to pay me to do what I love. Most people would not call my dad a wise man, but he did give me good advice when he said, “Do what you must to support your passion until your passion can support you.” And that’s just what I’ve done. I’ve had a lot of jobs, but writing and editing brings me joy. It  is not hard to be successful when you love what you do.  Though writing is probably the hardest and most intense work I’ve done, it brings me the most joy.

If you’ve taken the time to check out this page, I hope you’ll take a moment to peruse the portfolio I have included here to see a few specific samples of the work I've done, including writing and editing for corporations in healthcare, advertising, and online learning. My freelance work includes writing for magazines, copywriting, and editing for agencies, writing and editing for blogs and websites, and content writing for social media. Please, contact me if I can assist with your organization's communications.My e contact information at the bottom of this page.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Caren worked for me, and her breadth of talent was important to our organization. She could handle TV, as well as print with equal confidence. I recommend her highly.

 

- Don Nelson, former Director of Public Affairs,

Baylor Scott & White

 

I have known Caren Austen for several years, first as a personal friend, and then later I discovered her many talents as an writer and editor. Caren began editing for me about two years ago. She works diligently and quickly to complete work. I think the most amazing and oustanding characteristic about her work is her ability to edit complex documents and add intelligent suggestions and insights even when they are outside her areas of core competence. That talent is difficult to find and vital for complex technical and thought leadership writers. She brings creativity and that "polishing touch" to all her work, from routine corporate documents to highly creative advertising and marketing communications.

 

Kathy Mast, President & CEO NEUVONOW, LLC + Principal/ President Kathy Mast Consulting

Caren is wonderful to work with. She'd never miss that I ended that first sentence with a preposition. In addition to editing copy like mine, she also did quite a bit of writing for the agency where I hired her, and I was glad every day that she was there. Such a dependable and unfailingly pleasant talent. And not just a team player, but also a team builder. Be like me -- hire Caren!

 

- Richard Graves, Creative Director, Imaginuity

It is my pleasure to recommend Caren Austen. Caren is detail oriented and has a very good eye for catching mistakes and making suggestions on how to improve content. She works well in a group as well as on her own. She is passionate about writing and editing.

 

Terri Hays, Former Director, Strategic Projects at

Insight For Living

Caren was self-motivated and always completed her work for Z3 on time with creativity. She is a pleasure to work with and did great work for our clients.
