About

 

Take a generous helping of frazzled motherhood, a dash of geekery, a love of nature and a few gallons of dark roast coffee, and you get me.

 

Hi, my name is Alma Campos.

 

I’m a freelance writer and WordPress enthusiast. Before freelancing, I wrote for local newspapers and magazines in Chicago. I also managed PR campaigns for a globally-affiliated nonprofit focused on empowering and organizing marginalized people living in some of Chicago’s disadvantaged areas.

 

My creativity mixed with a restless entrepreneurial spirit has led me to create a unique freelance consultancy working with clients in higher education, health, wellness, arts & culture, and tech.

 

I also enjoy working with startups looking for direction with their content and management, and I’m a good fit for web and creative agencies looking for an experienced writer that knows how to work with other creatives, and who is also comfortable meeting directly with clients.

 

When I’m not working you’ll find me drinking coffee, taking a walk to think, cuddling with my daughter and cat, or enjoying a conversation with friends. I also moonlight as a reporter and write on a wide range of topics for online magazines ranging from arts and culture, parenting, and feminism. I’m also an advocate for mothers, immigrants, and disadvantaged children. I look forward to getting to know you and being part of your world.

Cheers.
