Saying that Jane Sutter is an award-winning writer with more than 30 years of experience writing for newspapers, magazines and websites doesn’t capture the wide range of her abilities. Jane can craft copy that ranges from the serious (she’s won awards for editorial writing) to the light-hearted (another area of achievement). Jane works with clients to know their targeted demographics and she then writes appropriate articles, blogs and marketing copy. Jane also is an experienced blogger and teaches classes on blogging at Writers and Books in Rochester, N.Y. Since the fall of 2015, Jane has regularly contributed to Research at RIT Magazine. Read her recent articles in Rochester Magazine and Mushing Magazine.
Have you noticed that award-winning writers always thank their editors, and book authors are effusive in their praise in those back-of-the-book acknowledgements? Jane’s superb editing skills have helped many writers and journalists take C-level copy and turn it into A+ prose. Whether your writing is intended for a book, blog, magazine, website or academic publication, Jane can edit it so it’s both compelling and clear, not to mention free of any errors – spelling, grammar and punctuation.

Whether you need a jump-off-the-shelf book cover design or a full complement of marketing materials, Sutter Communications Associate Sarah Crupi has those in her repertoire.

Interested in self-publishing your book? We can take care of all the details, from small (like getting an ISBN number) to large (finding the right printer) and everything in between: writing and/or editing the book, designing the cover and inside pages, and developing and executing strategies for marketing, publicity and social media.

Jane has extensive contacts at media outlets in the Rochester, N.Y., area, and has had great success getting attention for clients and non-profits. Having worked much of her career for large media companies, Jane also has extensive media contacts throughout the United States.
Sutter Communications Associate Tamara MacDuff not only knows the “how tos” of social media but most importantly, she knows the “why” and what works and what doesn’t to help clients achieve their business goals. As the owner and Social Media Contessa of Web Moxie Media, Tamara believes in empowering business owners on how to execute content and social media strategies.
