Joshua Rose is a professional copywriter, blogger, business writer and Web Publisher. He writes for clients and his own websites and publications.
In truth, he writes about a number of topics, but his primary focus is on business-related topics including the freelance industry, small business marketing solutions, public relations, and helping businesses increase their market share without having a Madison Avenue marketing budget (or even a marketing department for that matter).
Experience / Education / Qualifications
While Josh has been a paid, published, and professional writer since his days in high school, he didn't begin writing full-time until late 2009 when he decided it was time to leave the corporate grind and venture out on his own.
Prior to moving on to a full-time freelance life, Josh worked in the pharmaceutical research industry where he was able to spend his days playing with monkeys (how cool is that!).
But it wasn't all fun and games, he also developed new drug delivery systems, wined and dined clients, and wrote hundreds of corporate documents including, but not limited to, annual reports, white papers, corporate profiles, press releases, company intranet materials and ridiculously boring standard operating procedures.
Before his corporate life, Josh had the good fortune to study under Stu Dybek, one of the short story masters of modern American literature, while attending Western Michigan University. This tutelage helped hone Josh's talents as a fiction writer as well as a copywriter. Short, concise, and "show, don't tell" were the rules. All of which translate into powerful copy.
During his life as a writer Josh has been published in more than 20 small press literature magazines for his short stories and poetry along with numerous columns, news items and feature stories in local and regional newspapers .
In addition to his prowess as a literary up-and-comer (at least in his own mind), Josh has written hundreds of pages of copy for web and brick-and-mortar companies alike.
If you couldn't tell by now Josh's writing isn't limited to his business copy and blogging, he also offers the following writing services to clients:
Web content writing
White paper writing
Press release writing
...and a ton of other writing varieties, after all, we all know what the spice of life is.
Josh has also frequently written topics covering politics, sports, health/psychology and issues that men face. While he isn't a jack-of-all trades, he does wear a couple of different hats.
Feel free to contact him about your writing needs, even if they aren't listed above. If the project isn't something he can handle, he probably knows someone who can, and isn't afraid to admit when someone else would be better for the task at hand.
