My name is Colleen Powers,

and I live in Minneapolis. Professionally, I write and edit articles, marketing copy, and social media posts. On my own time, I write about what I'm reading, watching, listening to, and thinking through.

Browse my published pieces if you are interested in art, nonprofits, and how the arts can strengthen organizations and communities. I regularly write for Creative Exchange, a national platform for arts storytelling and resource sharing. I also write for the blog of Connect the Grey, which applies creative principles to solve problems for organizations.

Read my personal blog for thoughts on pop culture, the Midwest, and the ongoing struggle to be a proactively kind person.
