I’m a former print journalist and a writer first by training and passion; an Internet and information addict in love with online media. My specialty is content strategy creation, my forte is branding, my passion is storytelling. Originally from Nashville, TN, I now live and work in Washington, DC.
I am passionate about the definition: that space before something or someone is described to the world. I help new companies define themselves through writing and communications. I help nonprofits make better use of social media, resulting in fundraising success. I help small businesses use social media and publicity to increase sales. And (deep breath!) I coach professionals particularly marketing and P R pros one-on-one to develop a truly effective online brand, resulting in better jobs and more client offers! I love it!
I have been called a “content machine,” and truthfully, I have always been this way. When I was growing up I wrote poems (I have hundreds of old poems stashed away in notebooks and on old computers). Now, instead of penning poems, I blog at Mopwater PR + Media Notes, Black Enterprise, Two DC Toddlers and Atelier.
I run the DC PR firm Mopwater Social PR. I dig creative people, good music (Coltrane and Fela are favorites) art (Bearden, Basquiat, Kara Walker), my delicious toddlers, good conversation and an expertly pulled shot of espresso. If you’re in DC, let me know and I’ll meet you for lattes at one of my favorite cafes.

“While I don’t believe the press release is dead, it has been transformed, to become this living, breathing thing. If a release doesn’t have a social element — that is, a way for viewers to comment or share to their social networks — it doesn’t have legs,” said Amanda Miller Littlejohn of Mopwater Social PR.
