My name is Holly Sinclair, and I am a copywriter, content marketer, and former educator with a passion for creative writing. After earning an MFA in poetry from Arizona State University, I taught for several years in Phoenix. I moved to St. Louis in 2012 where I tutored, lectured at Maryville University, and began writing creative nonfiction. I taught students at Lift for Life Academy before joining Seafoam Media in 2017. Currently, I write marketing content for a living and creative essays for fun.
My students call me Ms. Sin-Sin.
I write because I’m in love with words, sentences, and paragraphs—and the way our most sparkling ideas reveal themselves through careful organization. I geek out over a well-turned phrase. A just-right action verb gives me a tiny sense of satisfaction. The perfect-puzzle-piece quality of choosing one sentence to place before or after another is the engine that keeps me going.
As a student poet turned English teacher turned professional writer, I write with a few specific guidelines in mind:
Whether I’m writing a shopping guide for a furniture store, describing the ideal wedding venue, or listing the dos and don’ts of creating a brand guide, I strive to bring a high level of quality to everything I create.
“Holly Sinclair is the kind of employee that every person would want on their team. She brings an air of knowledge and expertise, which makes her the go-to woman when it comes to any type of writing or topic; I’m truly convinced that there’s nothing she can’t write about and turn into a masterpiece. She’s not only an absolute beast at what she does, but she’s also a great leader, teammate, and friend. Holly is funny, dependable, and brilliant. I cannot recommend her enough!”Holly Wentworth, Marketing Strategist
