Writer in Los Angeles, California
Hi. My name is Stephen Burns, and I’m a writer and editor in Los Angeles, California. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English with a specialty in Creative Writing and a minor in History from Auburn University. Music is my first love and influences everything I create. I am a direct writer; I'm concise, and I know how to use semicolons. For five years, I've worked in agencies and as a freelancer writing and editing for top companies at high stakes. Through that experience, I have developed specialties in internal communications, brand voice development, long-form articles, and content strategy. But before any of those terms even entered my vocabulary, I was a musician. I play guitar, bass, drums, sing, and write songs with every fiber of my being. This passion influences my work as a copywriter and informs a natural rhythm that plays to the ear of any audience. I believe that musicality in writing ignites emotion and incites action; it elevates information and impresses the memory. I'm a writer with a sharp eye for detail and a mind full of ideas, and I would love to work for you.

Here are some nice quotes about my work: "Stephen is an extraordinarily talented writer and strategist." Jon Hutson, Managing Director at Brand Culture Company LLC "As a copy editor at Brainjolt, Stephen had amazing attention to detail. He was conscientious, on top of his workload and beyond that, proactive. On the personal side, he was always a joy to work with. He's a super nice, easygoing guy with a great work ethic. What more could you ask? I highly recommend Stephen." - Stephanie Rheingold, Content Strategist at Brainjolt Media "Stephen is a talented writer and always my first choice when I am looking for someone to write for our projects. He has written for ads, brochures and websites for us. We love his work! He's reliable and open to suggestions, though his work usually needs few revisions. Thanks!" Deborah Hayes, Creative Director at Deborah Hayes Advertising "Stephen is a talented writer who works equally well autonomously and as part of a tight team. He played an essential role at Tribe for many years, first as a staff member and later as an independent contractor. I highly recommend Stephen and am happy to answer any questions you may have about him." - Elizabeth Cogswell Baskin, CEO, Executive Creative Director at Tribe, Inc.
