Johanna Harlow

It's nice to meet you! I'm a freelance journalist with articles published in Content Magazine, Eater, SASS Magazine, Silicon Valley Business Journal,, Grace Belle, Yayworld, The Six Fifty, Lookout Santa Cruz, and the Mountain View Voice. There's nothing I enjoy more than pulling back the curtain and peeking into the lives of cinematographers and photographers, architects and actors, lyricists and muralists. I love crafting narratives in a way that will pull readers into a reality different from their own and tug them along on a journey. My favorite niche topics are subcultures, filmmaking, day trips, creative minds, and anything with a quirky twist.

When I'm not publishing articles, I'm hosting The Local Creative (an online show where I chat with artists and makers), screenwriting (commercial & narrative fiction), or writing marketing content on behalf of creative entreprenurs. Don't forget to click through the other tabs to view more of my work, and if you like what you read, send me an email so we can discuss collaboration: writerjoharlow[at] 

Note: Johanna Harlow is my professional name (I use it as my pen name and on-air name). Occasionally, when a publication requests it, I write under my given name which is Johanna Hickle. (My older articles are also published under this name.)
