Welcome to YourWriter, a company created out of my love of language and a desire to be in the driver’s seat of my own career. My name is Jacquelyn Grinder, and I am a professional writer with over 20 years of experience. During this time I’ve written hundreds of websites, marketing pieces, ad campaigns, guides, books, academic pieces, and technical documents.
Over the years I’ve been fortunate and worked hard, a combination that has helped me make a name for myself and generate a network of repeat clients. While I’ve spent a lot of my time on the tech-writing and training side of things, working with companies like Honeywell, Boeing, Hang Seng, and On Semiconductor, I’ve also been heavily invested in the marketing and academic world as well.
One of the best things about being a writer is that you always get to learn new things. I’ve worked on everything from study guides for DHS field agents and documents for FBI profilers to language textbooks and movie scripts. I’ve also been able to work on language-based projects, a passion of mine, including helping create Korean and English language curriculum and learning aids.
I help companies from all of the world have conversations with their communities – building trust and establishing relationships that translate to customers and businesses. This can take the form of creating social media messaging and website writing, or it can be ad campaign messaging and newsletters. Basically, if it needs to be said, then I can help you find the right way to say it.
Some of my specialties include content strategy, training program creation, internal and end-user manuals, and the creation of systematic approaches and documentation protocols for enterprise-level programs. Additionally, I have heavy marketing and SEO experience, including analytic and path-correction.
YourWriter, and my subsidiary company Grinder Publishing, allows me to match my passion for language with my desire to learn, grow, travel, and explore. I love what I do and am excited to be able to help people just like you meet your goals while I continue to work to meet my own.

I am Erik Burns. I received a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Missouri in 2010, with an emphasis in Creative Writing. I double-minored in Psychology and Sociology. Choosing which field I enjoyed more was not possible, so even though some may have thought adding to my studies was ambitious, I had no trouble at all increasing my workload!
This work ethic continued into my career at a Missouri advertising agency. During my nine years there, I went from writing and scheduling social media posts for a handful of clients to doing the same for 40+. Not only did I write and schedule those posts, but I completely managed the social media pages. This included monitoring comments, responding to messages, and growing pages organically. In addition to social media, I wrote monthly SEO-friendly blogs and newsletters for many of these clients. I also created written sponsored content that was published multiple times quarterly for television station websites. Multiple times a month, I created press releases for the clients as well. Rarely anything went out before I proofread it. I edited blogs, websites, television ads, digital ads, rack cards, email blasts, and PowerPoint presentations.
With as many clients as I handled, I learned quickly how to write for a variety of industries. From healthcare businesses and attorneys to zoos and heating & cooling companies, I gained nearly ten years of experience in helping any type of business thrive.
Though I learned quite a bit during my near-decade at the agency, I longed to work in writing more exclusively. I worked with Jacquelyn Grinder at that same agency for that entire time, and when she offered to partner with me, I did not hesitate to accept her offer. I am beyond ecstatic to work with YourWriter, and I cannot wait to find out what happens next!
