Joan Wilder: Journalist, Writer, Editor

About me

As a freelance journalist, I’ve written hundreds of pieces that run the gamut from the hardest of hard news stories—fires, kidnappings, politics—to the most narrative of non-fiction features: travel stories, essays, and profiles. My work has appeared largely in daily newspapers and industry magazines, including the Boston Globe (I wrote for the paper weekly for more than 10 years), and the Patriot Ledger — where I was a regular contributor with a beat for several years. Prior to moving to Miami in mid-2013, I wrote a food column for called The Dish, and reviewed restaurants for the South section of the Boston Globe for several years.

I’ve also ghost-written a book and authored and edited many other types of pieces: non-fiction book proposals, grants, press releases, corporate newsletters, website copy, short histories for reference books, narrative biographies, a TV script, and more.

This is an old site of mine — with old work — but I can’t quite bear to get rid of it!
