Freya Drake

Experienced Content Writer, Food Writer, Journalist
  • Anywhere, Oregon
  • January 13, 2023

I'm a freelance content writer currently writing (and ghostwriting) about food and culinary topics, in addition to reporting on local arts and entertainment events. In the past I've also written in music, lifestyle, and pets, in addition to copywriting projects like case studies.

From 20 years of working as a prep cook, line cook, and ultimately as a pastry chef, I'm a culinary expert. My food writing specialties include all things pastry and vegan and vegetarian topics.

I'm interested in writing in any of the niches mentioned above, and am also interested in health and wellness topics, B2B writing, case studies, and email newsletter writing. Variety is a vital spice in my life, so please don't be afraid to reach out if you're looking for a versatile writer!

My background began in creative writing 20 years ago, which I continued pursuing as an adult through poetry, fiction, songwriting, and personal essays. I look forward to writing more feature articles this year and submitting to literary journals in my free time.
