Phil Allard

Web Writing: I worked for four years as writer and editor on www.taunton.com, the online presence of a major special-interest publisher. I've written academic copy for Saint Joseph College, websites for the Martino & Binzer Advertising Agency, Torrington Savings Bank, biolitec, Conoptics and others. If you're looking for full-service web site development, my wife Cat and I can deliver. See www.badcatgraphics.com for details.

Copywriting: Fortified by 18 years of experience, I have written direct-mail packages in homebuilding, cooking, gardening, woodworking, fiber arts--even humor. Many have gone on to become controls. In addition, I have written print campaigns for medical clients , media kits for the Robert E. Morris Company and magazine renewal efforts for Mad Magazine. All solid--all connecting with their audience.

Sports Writing and Interviews: My column, 10th Inning Journal, appears on the WCSB NewsRadio 880 website, the home of the New York Yankees. I am a staff writer and columnist for www.nyyfans.com—voted #1 website for knowledgeable Yankee Fans by ESPN—and I have a radio show on Gotham Sports Radio. I've also interviewed players, announcers and writers, including Bill Walton, Charley Steiner and Bill "Spaceman" Lee.

Research: Adept at advanced research techniques for print and the web, I have prepared in-depth informational packages for ESPN on-line talents. I've written TV scripts for ESPN's Ringside Boxing Series, including the George Foreman Marathon Documentary with Bert Sugar. I've also written and researched major portions of the 2006 World Almanac of Records.

Book/Article Editing and CopyEditing: Full edit on books such as: Charlie Self's The Apron Pocket Guide to Woodworking and Romance Writer Tracy Farrell's Children of the Prophecy.
