Writing, Messaging & Branding:
Lily Thayer Derrick

Lily Thayer Derrick has over twenty years of writing, editing, communications and marketing experience in both the corporate and nonprofit sectors.

A relentless self-editor, Lily focuses on delivering clean, error-free copy that is informed and engaging for diverse audiences. She has been responsible for website copy, copy for presentations and print collateral, corporate blogs, research papers and grant proposals, as well as news and magazine stories. Fiction-writing is her first love, and she graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with degrees in English and Creative Writing. She holds a Master of Liberal Arts degree from St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland.

In addition to her passion for writing, Lily is obsessed with working on her family’s 200-year-old farmhouse and garden outside Baltimore – activities she insists on calling “homesteading” – while making sure her three young children spend as much time outside as possible.
