The Writers For Hire: A Look at 2017
THE WRITERS FOR HIRE: A LOOK AT 2017
Two-thousand seventeen was an exciting year at The Writers For Hire, Inc.
We celebrated some big milestones and witnessed our community come together in amazing ways, during a time of crisis.
As we reflect on the past year, we are ever grateful for the opportunities we have had to meet so many wonderful people who have greatly contributed to the growth and success of TWFH. Tweet this
At the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in May, we had a great time chatting with O&G industry representatives from Houston and around the globe.
We were also pleasantly surprised by some of the amazing corn hole skills we witnessed.
A big thanks to all of you who took the time to stop by to see us at our booth!
In July we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of our awesome senior editor, Stephanie Hashagen.
This was the first 10-year employee anniversary for The Writers For Hire!
To help commemorate this exciting milestone, we asked Stephanie to share some of the wisdom she has acquired over the past ten years.
TWFH partook in a couple of fun media events in 2017…
In July, Media Bistro published an article about Wintress Odom, our owner, titled “The Pros and Cons of Running a Writing Agency.”
The piece described Odom’s journey from freelance writer to founder of a successful writing-services company.
VoyageHouston, a community news publication, featured Odom and TWFH in November.
The artice, “Meet Wintress Odom of The Writers For Hire in West,” includes some of the challenges Odom has overcome while building her business, along with shout outs to some of the people who helped her make TWFH a success.
Hurricane Harvey Relief
After Hurricane Harvey devastated greater Houston with floods in August, we witnessed the very best of humanity, as people from all walks of life came together to help however they could.
We are extremely grateful those who, like our Communications Manager Brittany Cooper and her husband Cody, put their lives on the line and traveled throughout the Houston area by boat, rescuing people who were stranded in their homes.
We also want to thank all of you for pitching in and helping the Odom’s and The Writers For Hire provide much needed supplies directly to flood victims. We could not have done it without you!
We will forever be inspired by the “everyday heroes” who selflessly stepped forward to make a difference in the lives of others.
Donation to Las Amigas
In November, TWFH was given the opportunity to participate in an amazing event, benefiting Amigas Para Niños, a nonprofit organization helping young people in need.
We were very excited to find out that the personal history book package we submitted was auctioned off for $2,200!
It really was an honor to be part of such a worthy cause.
2017 was truly an incredible year, and we have all of you to thank for that.
We cannot wait to see what 2018 brings!
