Born with an uncanny ability to find fault, Lauren Hauptman quickly realized popularity might not be in her future. So she honed her innate gift into a freakishly attuned talent for improving the work of others. She is seldom found without a red pen in hand and has pledged to eradicate superfluous apostrophes and other such mortal sins wherever they dwell.

A seasoned communications professional with nearly two decades of publishing, marketing-communications, branding and fund-raising experience in a variety of environments, Lauren Hauptman is a versatile editor/writer/designer with a sense of style and extensive expertise. She really does do it all: She’s one of those odd few who can make your materials both sound beautiful (she’ll write and edit your copy within an inch of its life) and look beautiful (she’ll design your project with panache and punch).

Through LAUREN HAUPTMAN INK, she offers editorial and creative consulting, adaptable to your needs and goals. She produces a wide range of materials: from marketing promotions, brochures and ad copy; to newsletters and invitations; to reviews, columns and feature stories; to press releases, websites and fund-raising solicitations.
