JESSICA HOLLAND

Storytelling that connects

I’m a non-fiction writer with more than a decade’s experience.

I love to illuminate big ideas about technology and the natural world, and profile adventurers, activists, artists and athletes who are unafraid to test new paths.

I’m always excited to meet potential new collaborators. If you have a story that needs telling, let’s talk.

TESTIMONIALS

“Jess is a commissioning editor’s godsend. Gets the brief, unearths the story and contacts, always files on time. She’s also the rare writer you can call upon to cover a range of topics – technology, business, culture – with genuine knowledge and enthusiasm. Her copy is on-point, engaging and clean as a whistle.”

Danielle Green, Editorial Director, Touchline

“Jessica is incredibly reliable and professional and always delivers on deadline. She’s full of stellar ideas and enthusiasm, no matter the project or subject matter, and is an excellent communicator – fast to reply at all times – which makes her the ultimate go-to person for quick turn around stories. She’s definitely one to keep at the top of a list!”

Andrea Kurland, Editor-in-Chief, Huck

“Working with Jess has made my job easier. She responds to emails quickly, works hard to understand the briefs, asks smart questions and delivers on-time (or early). She responds to feedback very well and has an equally quick turnaround for revisions. My whole team is grateful to be working with her.”

Christina Mannatt, Head of Marketing, Space Angels

“Jess is the consummate writing professional, delivering clear and interesting copy to deadline. I’m happy to recommend her for both long and short form writing, and she shows extra skill in taking really complex, technical ideas and making them clear and readable. I’m very happy we found her!”
