My name is Colleen Powers,

and I live in Minneapolis. Professionally, I research, 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 work with social enterprises around the Twin Cities, using writing and editing to amplify their missions.

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