Mark Wollemann is a former newspaper editor turned college educator turned freelance writer and editor turned incurable bicyclist. His enthusiasms range from narrative journalism to exploratory beer consumption. But most of all, he loves words and stories.
After nearly 30 years working in newsrooms large (Los Angeles Times, The National Sports Daily, Minneapolis Star Tribune) and small (Florida Times-Union, Wausau Daily Herald, North Adams, Mass., Transcript) across the United States, Mark spent four years teaching journalism at the American University in Bulgaria.
His return to America – land of milk, honey and the bottomless cup of coffee – brought him to Chicago, where he worked for agencies such as Edelman PR and wrote for various publications at Northwestern University. Then he rode his bike across the country – 3,700 miles of rutted roads and home-made pies. Now he’s back in Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes and 20,000 (seemingly) small-batch breweries, which makes him feel right at home.
Mark knows know that finding the right writer and editor to represent your voice is an important decision. That’s why he would love to walk you through your needs, the scope of your project, and your budget.
