CEO, Ragan Communications
Let me start with this: Laura is the most popular writer on PR Daily.
That is no small feat. We have hundreds of contributors, and we’re read by 1.2 million communicators around the world.
Laura’s stories are consistently the most shared on social media, and they always attract the most comments. She has a nose for the news and an instinct for what the reader wants. But above all, Laura knows how to write for today’s ADD-afflcited reader. Her stories are simple, clear and concise. They pack a lot of useful information into a small space.
Her story selection is likewise on target. This is what you want in a corporate writer and editor. She can write for both an external audience and employees. This is also rare.
Communicators today must fight for eyeballs. So if you’re searching for a writer who knows how to win over readers, Laura is beyond compare

It is with great pleasure that I heartily recommend Laura Hale Brockway as an editor.
As a full-time writer in the medical field for nearly 30 years, I have worked with dozens of editors for publications ranging from Medical Economics to JAMA to book editors. I would rank Laura among the best of them.
I have found her to be unfailingly professional as well as personally pleasant in our interactions. She approaches writers with a clear vision of what she wants from them, which greatly facilitates the writer’s ability to generate the desired copy. She edits with a clear eye that is able to grasp the writer’s point and sharpen it with minimal requests for clarification or additional information. This makes for quick turnaround of copy with minimal frustration on both ends.
In short, believe Laura will be a valuable asset to for whatever position she accepts.

This letter is written to tell you about my former co-worker and friend, Laura Hale Brockway.
Laura and I worked together at Texas Medical Liability Trust for more than 11 years. She is the editor of the newsletter and I was the contributing editor of the publication. We relied on each other to publish a newsletter recognized for its excellence. Nearly every issue included an article relevant to our readers (primarily physicians) written by Laura. She has been personally recognized with awards from the American Medical Writers Association and the Austin Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication.
Laura possesses many qualities worthy of note. She is mature, dependable and committed to excellence in all that she does. I would heartily recommend her for any position that she seeks knowing a future employer will be fortunate to have her.
