About This Blog

So you’re a medical professional, and you want to write for lay people? Well, this blog’s for you. Its purpose:

  1. To help you access your playful inner lay person so you can communicate effectively, with ease.
  2. To teach about different types of writing (blog, short story, book, press release, Web and on and on …)
  3. To remind you of the writing rules you may have forgotten–and help free you up to break them!
  4. To give you news and job alerts about the different worlds of lay writing.

For six years, I’ve been working with medical professionals who are dying to communicate to a wider audience of patients. If you want to write for lay people, I want to help you do it. In fact, I hope that if you read this blog, you’ll not only be a better doctor writer, but you’ll be a better writer than most people out there, period.

If you’d like me to write about anything in particular, please comment below.

If you need more immediate help than this blog can provide—or just want to contract out to a pro—I’m available for editing or writing. Please get in touch here.

Here’s more on why I started this blog.

And here’s my other blog: Hollywood Weight Watch: Rebooting our perception of healthy weight women.

I look forward to getting to know you.



  1. I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen
    to be working with? I’m experiencing some minor security
    problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something
    more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. What a great idea. To revitalise the creativity of the medical professional. It can only make for a better all round service and develop some empathy. Super.

    • Thank you, Geraldine. I’ve found that many doctors want to pull that creative side out; they just need a little encouragement. I appreciate your support.
