Our partnership with SPOW

In a press release today, we announced our recent partnership with the Society of Professional Obituary Writers (SPOW).

Since mid-April, SPOW has been contributing to our blog, The Obit Report. Their contributions feature ordinary folks with great stories and well-written obituaries, and we’ve been excited to find that these ordinary folks are a hit. Just like us, our readers enjoy a good tale about someone who could be their next-door neighbor.

Those neighbors might be Bill Lambie, who loved music but couldn’t carry a tune… or Rose Gorga, who served her country in WWII… or Father Charles Bisgrove, who felt called to work at Ground Zero. We love their stories, as well as all the others SPOW has brought us.

About Linnea

I joined Legacy.com in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
