Editorial Services

Laura E. Garrard, MS-Communications, News Editorial Journalism

Communications Specialist with an Advertising/PR and Publishing Background

I have provided editorial services to publishing organizations for over 14 years, mainly in the publishing center of Nashville, Tennessee. I am an avid reader of, and am most interested in proofreading, books of these genres: travel, travel journal, outdoor recreation, women’s studies, Native American studies, spirituality/religion, inspirational, self-help, psychology and fiction.

In addition, I write creative advertising and effective public relations copy for advertising campaigns, flyers, press kits, brochures and more. As a senior member of the communications department of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, I composed advertising copy for print and radio ads, collateral pieces, billboards and banners. Plus, I have produced advertising and public relations copy for my own clients. My background includes a bachelor’s in advertising/public relations from Texas Christian University (Magna Cum Laude) and a master’s degree in communications (journalism/publishing focus) from The University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
