As one of my journalism professors told me, a good journalist has a never-ending sense of curiosity. I credit my insatiable desire to learn and question as the force behind my work. My mission to discover the unusual, the offbeat and the unknown has resulted in many interesting story assignments over the years, including a piece about a one-room schoolhouse still in operation in Minnesota, a 2,000-mile scavenger hunt along historic Route 66, a woman who biked from Massachusetts to Wisconsin while towing a typewriter and collecting stories along the way, and many more. In addition to feature stories, I'm well-versed in health and wellness writing and community journalism. My work has appeared in Milwaukee Magazine, The Writer, Woodland Magazine, Rails to Trails Magazine, Route 66 Magazine, as well as several regional and local publications. (View my complete portfolio at http://www.bysararae.com/portfolio.html.) In addition to a robust magazine and newspaper writing portfolio, I spent seven successful years at the Reader’s Digest Association as an editor with the trade and retail books team. There, I immersed myself in the book publishing industry, contributed innovative ideas, created several successful cooking and home entertaining titles for the direct market and trade/retail product lines, and acted as lead editor of the Taste of Home Cooking School special interest publication. While print media is my focus, past experience in broadcast media (both reporting and producing) make me a well-rounded and versatile journalist. Whatever media form I use, my goal remains the same: create stories that inform, engage and inspire the audience. Specialties: • Features • Health & Wellness • Community News • Nature & Conservation • Regional/historical travel • Food editing/writing • Teaching Technical skills: • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook) • Windows and OSX operating systems • QuarkXPress and InDesign • Social media reader engagement • Blogging
