Senior Content Writer Morgan Acree Joins Redshift Writers

Senior Content Writer Morgan Acree Joins Redshift Writers

Houston (November 15. 2021)  — RedShift Writers is proud to announce the addition of talented content writer Morgan Acree to our growing team. Acree will take on senior content writing work and strategy for clients across various industries, including tech, healthcare, and social good.

 

“I’m where I want to be in my professional life. This has been a real shift from my previous work, and I am finding it rewarding. I am still building my voice as a writer, but it has been great learning and growing with others in the company. There are plenty of opportunities to develop my skills at RedShift, and working with fellow writers every day is fun.”

 

Acree is the second new hire in recent months for RedShift Writers, part of an overall expansion for the nine year-old writing firm. Thanks in part to Acree’s hard work, the team has been able to rapidly ramp up its capabilities this year.

 

“Morgan skillfully guides content strategy for companies,” said RedShift Writers Founder Daniel J. Cohen. “In addition to crafting compelling content for the businesses she serves, she understands how to design and implement a forward-looking game plan that leverages the calendar, search algorithms, and the strengths of our clients so they can achieve their goals. We are very lucky to have her.”

 

Acree comes to RedShift with an already impressive resume. She previously worked in the housing nonprofit world as a Community Manager and assisted those with lived experiences of homelessness as well as those with mental health issues, chronic illness, and substance use issues.

 

“I took on a manager position fairly quickly after getting hired, and I was comparatively pretty young. I was also in charge of writing notices. The job was often exhausting, and it definitely didn’t leave me as much free time, but it was all for a good cause. I was journaling a lot during that time. It was good to get my experiences down on paper and be able to flip to the next page and a new day,” she says.

 

The job came with other lessons and opportunities for growth too. 

 

“As a young woman in a position of authority, I had to stand up for myself and establish boundaries early on. It was important to speak up, lead, and to be assertive. I came away from the job much more confident in myself,” she adds.

 

While RedShift is based in Houston, Texas, Acree recently moved from her longtime home of Austin, Texas to  Laramie, Wyoming. Acree has three pets: Kiwi the pug, Birdie the mini-Aussie, and Ritz the axolotl. Ritz is much beloved by the RedShift team and serves as somewhat of a company mascot.

In her free time, Acree reads psychological thrillers and explores the great outdoors. She has camped and hiked in many local state and national parks.

Morgan McAllister Joins RedShift Writers as Senior Content Writer

Senior Content Writer Morgan McAllister Joins RedShift Writers

Houston, TX (September 27, 2021) — RedShift Writers is excited to announce the addition of senior content writer Morgan McAllister to its growing team of content writers and strategists. 

 

McAllister brings extensive public sector experience to the company. Previously, he produced public communications content for the Harris County District Clerk’s office, and wrote and edited digital content for NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

 

“At RedShift, I get to work with clients who are pushing the bar in their respective industries,” said McAllister. “As a team, we go beyond writing content for our clients. We work with them to bring their mission and values to life in their messaging. We help them discover their stories and tell those stories to the world.”

 

McAllister also worked with RedShift in 2017.

 

“We’re extremely grateful to have Morgan back,” said RedShift Writers founder Daniel J. Cohen. “He’s a creative, inquisitive writer who knows how to collaborate with others to bring people’s stories to life. RedShift is very lucky to have him join us, especially as we enter a new phase of growth with both authors and enterprises.”

 

RedShift Writers’ collaborative environment is a plus for McAllister.

 

“It’s a unique, non-traditional environment where passionate writers can brainstorm ideas and experiment with the words they put out in the world for clients,” said McAllister. “There’s no bureaucracy. Every writer can voice their thoughts, be it on a blog post idea or an internal company initiative. RedShift gives writers from all backgrounds a space to flourish, no matter which stage of their careers they’re in.” 

 

When he’s not writing, McAllister advocates for human rights and social justice in his hometown of Houston and beyond. He also enjoys camping, hiking, and swimming. At home, he’s managed by a quartet of cats: Noodle, Dora, Tortellini, and Nix. 

 

“As a queer, trans man, one of my goals is to make life better for other people in similar circumstances,” said McAllister. “I’m proud to be working at a company that models the values of human rights and social justice for all. RedShift cares about telling stories in an ethical, respectful manner.”

Silky Joshi Malik Releases Total Nobody Who Ran For Office and Lost-ish

RedShift Writers Client & Author Silky Joshi Malik Releases Essay Collection, Detailing 2018 Run for Office

(Houston, TX, October 16, 2020)—Houston-based content writing firm RedShift Writers is pleased to announce the launch of The Total Nobody Who Ran for Office and Lost-ish, an essay collection by Silky Joshi Malik that chronicles her 2018 run for United States Congress and the lessons she learned from her experience. 

“I feel so inspired when I see women of color fearlessly dive headfirst into the world of politics and make an impact. I have always spoken my mind and fought for myself and those around me, but there were so many unforeseen challenges and insecurities that I overcame when I finally decided to throw my own hat into the ring. I wrote this book to inspire young women to partake in politics and to show them that losing has its own perks. This is an extremely important time to share these kinds of stories if we want to see new types of leaders in this country,” says Silky Malik.

Silky’s run marked the first time an Indian-American woman ran for Texas’ 2nd congressional district. Although she came in third, Silky considers the experience an overall win in terms of the lessons she learned about herself, her friends, her family, and the political process.

“Daniel and Alex from RedShift Writers helped me put my thoughts in order and overcome early bouts of writer’s block. They helped me realize that writing doesn’t need to be perfect at first. It’s more important to get thoughts and ideas onto the page, which spurs more ideas until it all clicks together into one, complete book.”
