Experience

Recently the Santa Fe New Mexican‘s arts and culture magazine, “pasatiempo,” and Denver’s Bloomsbury Review have carried Nancy’s book reviews. And from 2010-2012 she judged the Western Writers of America Spur Awards contest for Best Western Short Fiction Story.

Nancy’s promotional work in 2002 for Phyllis Hoge Thompson’s Letters from Jian Hui and other poems, her fifth volume of poetry, and The Painted Clock, a memoir of her years as a bride in the New Mexico ghost town of Mogollon, resulted in reviews in Albuquerque Arts, the Albuquerque Tribune, the Las Cruces Sun-News, the Magdalena Mountain Mail, New Mexico Magazine, Prime Time, and the Silver City Daily Press.

At Johnson & Wales University her promotion of the Equine Studies Program through advertising, press releases, and placing articles in trade and general publications led to an increased enrollment of 66% over a two-year period in the early 1980s. Nancy’s articles appeared in Yankee Horse Trader and Horseman’s Yankee Peddlar. Students were recruited through direct mail, school appearances, exhibits, and campus tours.

As publicity chairman for the 1982-Coggeshall Historical Association’s family reunion, in Portsmouth, RI, she attracted coverage by CBS Evening News, the national edition of the New York Times, AP, UPI, and local television stations and newspapers to the 350th anniversary celebration of the arrival of the first governor of Rhode Island to North America.

In London, England, she promoted Oak Tree books (Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. in the USA), by targeting markets through press releases and establishing a more efficient book reviewing process (1970-1971). Her pitch to Kuwait Shipping Lines resulted in a sale of 2,000 copies of Kuwait in Pictures.
