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 a good income, while allowing me the flexibility of working full-time for companies or freelancing when I needed to be home with my family.


My portfolio shows some specific samples of the kind of 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, and writing and editing for blogs and websites, and content writing for social media. Please, call or email me if I can assist with your organization's communications, using the contact information at the bottom of

this page.


A few years ago, I moved back to my hometown to assist in the care of my aging mother and pursue the completion and publishing of my first book. Now, I am preparing for a new season of life and a potential move to a more metropolitan area where writing opportunities are more plentiful.


When I'm not writing or editing, I can usually be found spending time with my family and friends or hiding out with a book in hand.

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.

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.
