Janine Marie Stankus: Freelance Writer and Editor specializing in copywriting, editorial, and content strategy. Having started out in print publishing and journalism, I apply an ardor for artful stories to my work in the branded content realm. Behind-the-screen skills include SEO, HTML, analytics, and cross-platform content management.
Storytelling is my strength—from capturing creative visions to helping brands communicate their core values, I always find that compelling thread. I've worked with clients across industries to develop clear, strong messaging that resonates with the people that they're trying to reach.
With an M.A. in English from NYU, I've enjoyed stints as a beat journalist, freelance writer, copywriter, content manager, and editor for both startups and corporate brands. From clever tag lines to well-researched articles, I approach every project with creativity and a honed editorial eye.
When not wordsmithing, I spend my time biking/hiking/yoga-ing, dabbling in dubious poetry, and getting involved in on-the-ground projects that speak to me. I also do a mean (read: average) Stevie Knicks cover. I live for stories, love words, and am always looking for something new. Get in touch to discuss your editorial needs!
