Pamela Babcock is a writer and editor based in the New York City area. A former Washington Post reporter (and current contributor to The Post) I've bylined hundreds of stories for news sites, magazines, university, trade associations and personal clients. I also write blogs and ghostwrite articles.
I cover news, real estate, personal finance, legal issues and more. In addition to enjoying a long career as a daily reporter, I've been a spokesman and speechwriter for a Fortune 500 utility and director of communications for the N.C. Museum of Art and a B2B start-up.
My background as a journalist at The Washington Post means I understand deadlines. I've been a successful independent writer for more than 20 years and am always adding new clients. Contact me now to find out why I'm the writer to hire for your next project!
