WRITER, EDITOR

CELESTE THOLEN

FAST, THOROUGH, AND SHARP AS A TACK*

Hi. I'm Celeste.

From the time I could turn letters into words, I've been writing. Professionally, I've put words to use as a journalist, an editor, and now a marketing copywriter.

My experience in journalism gave me hustle, a penchant for accuracy, and the capacity to constantly pivot.

Now, I use those skills to keep up with the demands of a company that markets its products aggressively, and to develop a freelance clientele.

Contact me if you're looking for someone with some serious writing experience packed into six years on the job (journalism will do that for you).
