What subscribers are saying:

“I find that First Draft is a very valuable tool for me. I issue a company newsletter once a month. We have approximately 180 employees – field and office. I could not do the newsletter without First Draft.”

Christa K. Gahagan
Executive Assistant
EMJAY Engineering and Construction Co., Inc.

“I always find First Draft very fun and helpful for me in completing the weekly newsletter I send out to all of our employees.”

Sam Franklin
Executive Assistant
Spartan Chemical Company, Inc.

“First Draft provides some really useful information that I include in our employee newsletter! I also like the calendar of dates and observances. My readership finds them fascinating!”

Renarta C. Moyd
Communication Specialist

“The pieces are well-written so I don’t have to start from scratch, and I have no worries about infringing on someone’s copyright. Also, the format makes it really simple to copy-and-paste. I use a little bit of everything and always use something from the calendar, Quotes, Health Watch and Anecdotes. These pieces help make sure our newsletter contains a broad range of interesting, timely material so that there’s always something for everyone.”

Joseph F. Sinkovits
Vice President of Operations
