Everyone has a story to tell.
They all deserve a great storyteller.
As a boy Jim Smith was beguiled by his older relatives, a clan of inveterate yarn-spinners. From their fireside tales he learned how stories convey powerful ideas; how they can not only entertain people, but also inspire and move them. On the keys of his dad’s old Royal Typewriter, when he was nine years old, he began the adventure that became his career.
After graduating from the University of Maine, Jim began working as a sports writer and newspaper editor. He still believes some of the best writing in America is being done by sports journalists.
In the ensuing years, while wearing a closet full of professional costumes, he has never stopped refining his craft. The skill he has developed during that time – as an academic writer, health/medical writer, science/technology writer and the author of six books – has earned Jim a diverse roster of clients who depend on him for writing that compellingly tells their stories and produces results. But Jim’s clients also benefit from his insights into persuasion, honed during a 35-year marketing communications career distinguished by award-winning work for clients in such diverse industries as healthcare, sports, insurance, travel and clean energy.

""I've known Jim Smith for more than 20 years, and his body of work over that time stamps him as someone who can flat-out write. He is a natural storyteller with a style that can infuse life into even the most mundane subjects. Whether it's a piece for an academic journal, a corporate publication or a simple news release, Jim can make it shine."
