Who am I?

Persnickety, yet Polite. Plucky.

MollyBSingleterry

Hello! I’m a copywriter, content strategist, and community organizer in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Telling stories and giving meaning to the words we write and speak are my bread and butter. I want to know more, I want to know why, and I want to help in any way that I can.

I’m currently a copywriter and content strategist at Mighty in the Midwest, where we build websites. I work with kind, conscientious folks who delight in making websites look, sound, and work beautifully.

I also host and organize CreativeMornings Grand Rapids, a free monthly breakfast lecture series. We feature diverse speakers from around our city and West Michigan to challenge us, speak honestly, and inspire. Two years ago, the idea of getting behind a mic was one of my worst fears realized. Today, I find the opportunity exhilarating (and still quite a fear).

In my spare time, I design and sell wedding invitations and stationery through my paper goods business: Spectacle Design Studio. See invitation samples below!

Thanks so much for visiting. Use the form below or email me at molly.benningfield@gmail.com if you’d like to get in touch!
