About Me + Services

HI THERE, my name is Ryan J. Knight! I am a freelance writer, blogger, and editor specializing in high-quality content for blogs, magazines, and small publications. I previously worked with local independent news media such as Alaska Commons*, where I was a part-time columnist and political commentator.

Currently, I am completing my final year of grad school with a M.A. in Composition and Rhetoric from Alaska Pacific University.

Did you know that your magazine or blog can benefit from content in the following ways?

  • Increased visibility on search engines thanks to content that ranks for the keywords your customers are using.
  • Increased readership and subscription by using content that is entertaining, engaging, and informative.
  • Increased social media presences by sharing meaningful content with your audience instead of ads or spam.
