Freelance Homesteading Writer

Are you looking for a homesteading/rural living writer? Someone who knows the difference between a pressure canner and a boiling water bath, and when to use which? Who has milked the goat, slopped the pigs, and collected eggs with a baby on her hip?  Do you need a writer who knows the difference between a weed and a bean sprout and can conserve water as though it would never rain again? Well, look no further.

Not only has my family of eight homesteaded our modest acreage since 2001, I’ve lived to tell about it. In fact, my articles have covered how to:

  • Lay a tile hearth
  • Roast coffee
  • Grow truffles
  • Compile a cookbook
  • Make bread
  • Clean chicken feet
  • Grow brambles
  • Fight squash bugs
  • And more!

 
Whether you need a magazine article, blog post, e-book, case study, or even an oral presentation, I can make the rural homesteading life appealing to your readers, and your brand sound like the answer to their problems.

As a veteran freelance writer, my work has appeared in over 70 local, regional, and national publications. I’ve worked as a columnist, magazine editor, blog editor, and proofreader. Let me help you, too.
