I write and edit so you don't have to.

Hi! I'm Lara, and I'm a Brooklyn-based freelance writer, editor and editorial consultant with over 25 years of experience. As a journalist, I've specialized in covering national and international fashion and business trends. As an editor, I have engineered magazine launches and redesigns, curated and managed staff, established and maintained budgets, and generally made magazines run.

My clients have included Women's Wear Daily, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Newsday, Rapaport Magazine, The Kansas City Star, and an assortment of creative professionals.

When editorial work requires a visual element, I'm able to provide simple graphic and web design services. Alternately, I can make references for those requiring more extensive assistance.

I also work with independent artists, musicians, and other creatives to create website copy, artist statements, one sheets, press releases, and other relevant written materials necessary to their creative lives.

Please contact me if you'd like to talk about your next project.
