How can Clear Spot help you?

Clear Spot offers caring, nimble, and affordable communication services for mission-driven organizations.

I specialize in writing and editing materials that tell your strongest stories and helping you deliver them in ways that capture your audience's attention and loyalty.

I work to understand your organization and audience and help you share your stories efficiently and effectively.

About me

My name is Katie Titterton. I founded Clear Spot in 2016.


I'm an award-winning professional freelance writer and editor with 15 years of experience working in nonprofit communications, marketing, and fundraising. My clients make our world better and communities stronger. I've worked with:

  • Organizations supporting the arts, children, education, the environment, food systems, energy resilience, poverty relief, and more

  • Nonprofits both independently and publicly funded, with local, state, and regionwide service areas

  • Funders, foundations, partners, campaigns, and media


I understand Vermont's nonprofit landscape and have built a reputation for listening carefully, building community, and producing superb content that gets results.


I'm also a parent, hiker, skier, farm food eater, live music listener, dog lover, reader, and community volunteer.

Communications content

for Vermont nonprofits.


What does your nonprofit need?

I need materials that are current, inspiring, and top quality.


Clear Spot's signature service is producing content for nonprofits. That includes writing and editing newsletters, appeal letters, annual reports, video, grants, press releases, and more.

Our work is complex. I need to explain its importance concisely.


Clear Spot can help you make your case for any audience, whether you need talking points or press releases, social media posts or long form articles.


I need a plan to bring donors into the fold and keep them.


Clear Spot can help you with materials and strategies to reach your supporters. We'll also develop strategies to steward them consistently.

I know we have good stories, but I don't have time to collect and share them.


I conduct interviews that make interviewees feel heard and empowered. I organize stories and make them easy for you to share.

Katie is able to focus on the important parts of the message. She told our story in a way that is refreshing and inspiring. Katie was an essential investment for our small nonprofit.

Marie Thomas, Executive Director

Our Community Cares Camp

Katie has been an absolute joy and pleasure to work with. We all feel very lucky to have her on the team. She turns utility news, which can be technical and dry, into engaging, meaningful, and impactful stories about the people and communities we serve. She has been an instrumental asset in getting the Washington Electric Co-op message out to our members!
