Who is Sandra Beckwith?

Sandra Beckwith writes books, magazine articles, newsletters, and Web site content. A former publicist, she also helps authors, nonprofits, and small business owners learn how to save thousands of dollars in consultant fees by generating their own publicity. She is the author of Build Book Buzz Publicity Forms & Templates, Streetwise Complete Publicity Plans: How to Create Publicity That Will Spark Media Exposure and Excitement (Adams Media 2003), Publicity for Nonprofits: Generating Media Exposure That Leads to Awareness, Growth, and Contributions (Kaplan Publishing, June 2006) and WHY CAN’T A MAN BE MORE LIKE A WOMAN? (Kensington 1995). Her “Book Publicity 101: How to Build Book Buzz” e-courses are popular with authors.

Sandra writes regularly for consumer, custom and trade magazines on a range of topics. Her articles have appeared in Woman’s Day, Black Enterprise, Relish, American Profile, Old House Journal, VFW Magazine, MyBusiness, GRIT, Pages, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, and many other publications.

A former contributing editor of several trade publications, Sandra has worked at an educational publishing company in Madison, Wisc.; at the Chicago office of Burson-Marsteller, one of the world’s largest public relations firms; and at a beverage alcohol distiller/marketer in Hartford, Conn.

Self-employed since 1985, Sandra has been working from a home office for so long that she suspects she is no longer employable. She has a degree in journalism and public relations from Utica College, Utica, N.Y., and is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and the American Society of Business Publication Editors.

 Sandra is often in the news.

Reporters call Sandra regularly for her lighthearted insights into male behavior. She has offered tips for getting men to help with the housework (it’s easier than you think!) on “CBS This Morning,” supervised a “Stupid Men Tricks Race” on “Crook & Chase,” and discussed how to get a gift you actually want from a man during the holiday season on “Home & Family.” She has appeared on many other nationally-syndicated programs, including “Montel Williams,” and has been interviewed by radio stations coast-to-coast and by many magazines and daily newspapers, including Marie Claire, First for Women, Woman’s World, The New York Times, USA Today, The Chicago Tribune and many, many other media outlets.
