Professional Writing & Editing
I am experienced in a wide range of writing, but interviews, profiles and reviews related to the Arts are my specialty. In 2005, myself and Megan Milks, a writer and colleague, co-founded Mildred Pierce magazine, now on its 4th issue. Check the Mildred Pierce blog for goings on and to order back issues. Click herefor some clippings of my published journalism.
I am currently employed as a production editor and typesetter. I am available for freelance editing and layout work for pretty much any kind of publication. Holler at me.
I have a strong interest in the study and implementation of public policy that is focused on reimagining public urban space in post-economic-collapse cities (especially here in the United States). Do you have expertise in geography, GIS, urban history, and/or planning? Do you want to collaborate on a research project for a standalone website and possibly a publication? Contact me at "j.bylander at gmail (dot) com" for further details.
Performance and Poetry
As yet, the poems I have been doing in performance have not been published, even by me, but they will be. If you are interested in having me be a part of a reading or performance event, email me at j(dot)bylander(at)gmail(dot)com.
