FOR HIRE

Do you like what I do and want to work with me? Well, guess what? I’m for hire!

EVENT HOSTING

With over ten years of hosting experience I’m now being asked to MC events other than my friends’ weddings. I wanted to let you know about it, because I’d love to host your next event/party too!

My goal as an emcee is to put the crowd at ease by clearly organizing the event, using my sense of humor and charm and creating a comfortable environment for your audience. I’ll be there to hold the night together, to answer guest questions and introduce your featured guests. Bonus: I look great in a dress.

Sara added a great element of laughter and enthusiasm as the emcee at our member’s event this past summer.  She demonstrated her ability to communicate to our guests with fun and flare while at the same time ensuring that all of the important information was noted and delivered to allow for a smooth and hiccup-free event. We look forward to working with her again soon!

PUBLIC RELATIONS and PUBLICITY

Note from friend on Facebook: “How do you get all this press?”

Yeah, I’m in the media a lot. How do I do it? It’s easy: send out a press release. Okay, maybe not that easy.

With over a decade of experience I’ve had success getting my events and ideas on CBC Radio, National Public Radio in the USA, in national papers like the Globe and Mail and National Post as well as in Magazines across North America. Don’t forget blogs and Twitter, I’ve been getting attention on the Internet since creating TeenAngstPoetry.com in 2000.

Over the years I’ve shared my expertize writing Press Releases and submitting to the media with various artists and organizations. You can hire me to create Press Release Copy, Press Kits, Website Content and minimal design (using WordPress or the like), and getting the word out to your audience (event listings, print, radio and television media). My background in acting and my MA in Creative Writing has given me a strong grasp of voice that can capture whatever tone you wish to portray through your words.

Sara Bynoe was a excellent resource for my theatre company in the development of the Walking Fish Festival. Her on-line marketing strategy, contact list, and knowledge of the cities’ newspaper publications were the key to our success at the box office during her employment with Upintheair.  Sara is a go-getter, a great person and a consummate professional. I’d recommend her for any position.

Not only does Sara do a fantastic job, she can do many fantastic jobs for one event. For the Main Street Magazine Tour she handled publicity, led a tour group, and organized and hosted a special edition of Say Wha?! Readings of Delicously Rotten Writing at the afterparty.

PROFESSIONAL WRITING AND COACHING

Hate writing your own bio? Working on an on-line dating profile but just don’t know how to start? Want to start participating in social media but aren’t sure what to Tweet?

I’d love to help you out or give you critique and point you in the right direction. I’ve been involved in Social Media since 2000 and was one of the first blogs to books in publishing. I’ve also got an MA in Creative Writing so you can trust that I know what I’m talking about, because that’s what degrees are for, right?

Sara Bynoe has an inherent sense of how to work with social media. This combined with her crisp, always original writing style make for great promotion that has helped Public Dreams reach our audience just the way we want to.
