nDash Writer Profile for Susannah Edelbaum

Headline

Freelance writer from the U.S. based in Berlin, Germany

About Me

On the journalism side, I've written for publications including The Cut, The Strategist, SELF, Vice, and Modern Farmer, among others. My radio work has aired on NPR Berlin and KCRW Berlin. 

Fashion, beauty, and personal care companies make up the majority of my corporate content and copywriting clients, but I've also worked with a found-materials custom furniture start-up (social media text and engagement), a children's craft book publisher (well-researched, age-appropriate educational texts), and a few Berlin-based web agencies and PR firms (U/X writing, case studies, press releases). Most of this writing is completed under a strict NDA, but if you'd like to see samples, let me know and I'd be happy to send over anything shareable.
