  • WHO I AM

    Lindsey Grossman

    writer, editor, content strategist

    Hi, and welcome to my website! My name is Lindsey, and I'm a freelance writer, editor and content strategist based in Asheville, North Carolina. I have more than 15 years of experience in the communications industry, from magazines and newspapers to PR and marketing. I even had a brief, health insurance-induced stint as a Starbucks barista (where I learned to make a mean double-tall-soy-extra-hot-no-foam-light-whip latte). 

     

    I've served as an editor for skirt!, associate editor for Creative Loafing, editor-in-chief of Breathe, and have contributed to dozens of publications and websites including MapQuest, Paste, and USA Today.

     

    I'd love to hear more about you!
