Frommer’s Unlimited, Charleston Beaches & Gaillard Performance Hall Foundation

I had the amazing opportunity to work with the folks at Frommer’s Unlimited (and a friend from home!) on this website redesign. Frommer’s Unlimited puts their travel expertise, experience, and passion to work for some of the world’s best brands. Special thanks to my friend and Digital Marketing Manager, Jen, for providing fabulous direction, wrangling content and feedback from a host of people, and sending it all to me in a neat package. Jen, I hope you opened a LARGE bottle of champagne to celebrate!

If you’ve ever been to any of Charleston’s five fabulous beaches, you know they rock. If you’ve been to all five, lucky you! Also, you know that each beach has its own unique style and vibe. The Charleston CVB asked my pals at Blue Ion and me to create a site that shares all of the great things about Charleston beaches with the world, and, lets each beach be itself in its own quirky, wonderful way. Special shout outs to Chris, Craig, Brennan, and the CVB team. Check out the full Charleston beaches site.

If you haven’t heard, the Gaillard Auditorium is undergoing a major renovation that will transform it into a modern, state-of-the-art performance hall and community center. In addition to being a LEED-certified space, the new Gaillard Center is also home to a two-story, atrium grand lobby, an 1,800-seat performance hall with three balconies, 15,000-square-feet of ballroom and exhibition hall space, a banquet kitchen, 7,300-square-foot Banquet Terrace, 10,950-square-foot Event Lawn, and city offices. Thanks to the team at the Gaillard Performance Hall Foundation and special shout outs to Mike, Woody, and Robert at Blue Ion for such incredible inspiration. Here ’tis.

    Hi Jenny,
    I am a women’s studies professor (at UNC-Chapel Hill), creative writer and blogger. We had your book in our library and last week I picked it up and just love it. I tend to write prose, but am interested in learning more about poetry. Your writing allows such permission to feel a range of emotions. Are you writing more poetry?
    Best,
    Michele

      Hi Michele,
      Thanks for your note and kind words. I love that Rants made it to UNC. I am writing more poetry. It comes in fits and starts, and I always feel the need to do more to cultivate it. I’m checking out your blog and website right now and will email you. Thanks again for your note!
