Hey! I’m Kristen Koester-Smith – the voice behind Copy by Kristen. Creative communication is my superpower and words are my magic. I’ve been writing professionally for 10 years, although I started writing my first novel at age 10. I have BAs in English and Journalism from the University of Idaho. In addition to writing for brands of integrity, I also write poetry and short stories.
I’m originally from the USA, however, I’ve lived abroad most of my adult life. When you work with me, you may find I’m writing from a new place each month (but I always keep up my excellent turnaround times!). My experiences abroad have given me a unique understanding of the world helped me to realize what’s really important in this life.
I believe as citizens of the world, it is our responsibility to invest our time in working for companies that align with our values. This is why I only work with brands that spread positive messages, make or provide products/services that are environmentally sustainable, and contribute to the betterment of the world.
Please feel free to send me a message with any questions about how we can work together.
My mission as a writer and holistic SEO specialist is to create content that adds value to readers’ lives, connects brands of integrity to their customers, and elevates society through education, entertainment, or enlightenment.
In a world where millions of voices vie for people’s attention, I want to be speaking necessary, kind Truth.
- integrity – I keep my word and meet my deadlines.
- honesty – If for some reason I can’t keep my word or meet a deadline, I will always let you know.
- kindness – It’s the way.
- stewardship – I honor the earth as my home, and I try to ensure that everything I do, including my work, cares for it in some way.
- service – I believe in giving. If you are a non-profit and don’t have a lot of capital to invest in writing, send me a message about a non-profit scholarship.
- authenticity – I keep it real, and I’ll help you do the same.
Copy by Kristen clients are always impressed with my work, and I love creating long-lasting working relationships. For more information about my previous projects, check out my portfolio and testimonials.
Other than writing for Copy by Kristen, I also write stories, poems, and spoken word. I believe a lot of healing and life comes from discussing shared human experiences. I’ve been published in the Sand Hill Review, Typehouse, and Afterglobe. I’ve performed at Singapore Writers’ Festival, Singapore Poetry Festival, and Metaphors Be With You at Haque Center of Acting and Creativity. Check out my author’s website at kristenks.com.
