Jonathan Rick - Ghostwriter

Washington, D.C., DC, United States

I'm one of those lucky people whose jobs are extensions of their hobbies: I’m a ghostwriter who specializes in thought leadership.


Here are four things you should know about me:

1. I pride myself on writing that’s crisp, clear, and cogent, which entertains readers as much as it enlightens them.

2. I specialize in short-form thought leadership. This includes (but is not limited to) op-eds, blog posts, website copy, social-media copy, content-marketing articles, e-newsletters, PowerPoint presentations, news releases, and white papers.

3. I’ve been published in a wide variety of outlets — including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Time, Forbes, Fast Company, Mashable, and HuffPost — both under my own name and those of clients.

4. I teach business writing at the University of Maryland. My course encompasses subjects from elevator pitches to email etiquette, from proposals to PowerPoint, from media training to memos, from branding to blogging.
