Every nonprofit communicator writes [book review]

Whether you like doing it or not, if you’re a nonprofit marketer or communicator, you write. In fact, today’s marcom pros might just write more than ever before. But we don’t all come to this line of work from a writing background, which means a little guidance and reference material can help.

Building nonprofit communications capacity, Part 3: what we need

Over the last few days, I’ve been blogging about a session I facilitated for Maytree last week on building nonprofit communications capacity.
