Hi there! I’m Thomas Crank founder of CrankOut Words copywriting and writing coaching.


For the last 10+ years I’ve been writing, coaching, and teaching writing for a wide variety of businesses, individuals, and schools. My passion is helping business professionals, students, and teachers write clearly and effectively (with personality), and, in the case of teachers, teach writing in a ways that gets students so excited about it that they assign themselves homework (true story—it’s possible!).
