I’m Chris Duggan, and I’ve made my living as a professional communicator my entire adult life, including journalism, public relations, writing, editing, and marketing. I have run a newsroom, managed teams of marketing and communications personnel, and worked on my own as well. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. My bachelor’s degree was in English (yes, I wanted to be a high school English teacher at the time), and I have two graduate degrees: a Master of Arts in mass communications and a Master of Fine Arts in writing.
In this blog, I will write about issues in the communications industry, such as communications technique and philosophy and media literacy. We’ll also touch on creative writing, a big passion of mine.
The way we consume information, possibly more than any other aspect of our lives, has changed dramatically over a short time with the advent of new technologies. With these advances in technology, the basic components of good compelling communication are no different.
We’ll discuss all this and more. Welcome.
