What Clients Say

A go-to writer

“Annika is definitely a go-to writer — someone I can count on to write solid, engaging articles that are delivered on deadline, if not before. She’s also easygoing, intelligent, responsive, and great to work with. I highly recommend her.”

– Teresa Kenney, Editor, Northwest Meetings + Events Magazine

*****

 I would gladly hire her again

“I hired Annika to write new text for the new Berlitz Handbook to the USA, published in early 2012. She did an excellent job, providing lively and inviting chapters discussing unique American experiences. She was timely in her submissions, and eager to adapt the text to fit our changing editorial needs. I would gladly hire Annika again.”

– Astrid deRidder, Commissioning Editor, Insight Guides / Apa Publications

*****

A joy to work with

“Working with Annika Hipple has been a joy. She knows the adventure/eco-tourism field inside and out, and her understanding and intimate knowledge of our destinations is an incredible plus. She writes concisely, and her passion for travel is inherent within her writing, whether it’s for a client like Myths and Mountains, for her own travel blogs, or for another writing assignment. I can highly recommend Annika’s work.”

– Allie Almario, Vice President, Myths and Mountains

*****

Exceeded our expectations

“I worked with Annika to develop content for My Footprint Tracker, an environmentally focused site to help employees reduce their carbon footprint. Prior to hiring her, we struggled with striking the right tone in our copy — encouraging and engaging, without being trite — and were running out of time. Annika brought creative solutions to our challenges and provided expertise that instilled confidence in our leadership team that we would meet our goals for the Footprint Tracker. She was a pleasure to work with, was always accomodating, listened carefully to our needs, and despite our time zone difference, quickly responded to our requests. She exceeded our expectations and I look forward to working with her again in the future.”

– Shima Kelly, Communications Manager, UPS (United Parcel Service)

*****

A highly skilled writer and interviewer

“I had the opportunity to work with Annika during the development of a website for one of our agency initiatives, Burst for Prosperity. She is a highly skilled writer and interviewer and the content she produced for us — in a very tight window I might add — was top-notch. It was a blessing that she was familiar with the subject matter surrounding poverty reduction and economic development, but what she didn’t know she was quick to ask about or educate herself on very quickly. I look forward to working with Annika on future projects!”

– Kelly Bray, Marketing Communications Manager, Children’s Home Society of Washington

*****

A fantastic total package

“I have worked with many writers, and I can honestly say that Annika Hipple is one of the best. Oftentimes, you find people who are great at reporting and research but aren’t as gifted writers, and vice versa. Annika, on the other hand, is a fantastic total package. You give her an assignment to do, and she pours her heart into detailed and thorough research, reporting, and writing that is analytical, engaging, well organized, and beautiful. It is quite rare to find a service provider that is an expert in all of these areas. I highly recommend Annika, as she is more than capable and happy to do outstanding work!”

– Abiola Sholanke-Fluker, Editor-at-Large, Prudence International Magazine

*****

– Jeff Greenwald, Executive Director, Ethical Traveler

Far exceeded my expectations

“Annika far exceeded my expectations of hiring a professional writer.  Black Rapid is launching a new website with new products. Annika swooped in, smoothed out our story, and made our product descriptions very clear and concise. She easily understood what we’re about, and she quickly grasped our image. I’m sure I’ll need a writer again soon, and I won’t look anywhere else.”

– Tyler Kope, VP and CIO, Black Rapid, Inc.
