Business and Creative Writing

With 20+ years in journalism, creative, and advertorial (advertising editorial) copywriting, The WriteOne Creative Services provides compelling, exciting, and out-of-the-box copy with the perfect balance of style and voice. From corporate newsletters and press releases to public relations copy and entertainer and corporate bios, the WriteOne Creative Services can handle it all. Owner Deborah Kelley also honed her craft as a freelance reporter and guest editor for AOL Patch, Carrollwood, and Westchase and as a freelance reporter for the Tampa Tribune, Creative Loafing, and Seedling Magazine. She is currently a reporter for Tampa Bay News and Lifestyles Magazine, vegan food reviewer for CarlosEats.com and theatre reviewer for Broadway World and Groove Magazine.

She has also written and directed numerous one-act plays performed in competition throughout Tampa Bay. In 2017, she was awarded the Theatre Tampa Bay Jeff Norton Dream Grant to produce a show she wrote about bullying, mental health and gun violence with Peter Nason called “A Necessary Conversation” at Straz Center’s TECO Theatre, donating ticket sales to Moms Demand Action, Tampa. The show went on to win 2018 Broadway World, Tampa Bay’s Best Actor and Best Actress. An expanded version will be produced at Powerstories Theatre in 2020. On December 7, 2019, she is producing a show of monologues she wrote with the community at Powerstories Theatre called “Breast Advice: An Uplifting Conversation about Boobs.” A portion of all ticket sales will benefit The Affirmations Project. Her original song, “A Redneck Christmas Carol” will be performed in “A Christmas Cabaret” at Carrollwood Players Theatre in December 2019.
