Jason Phrydas


I'm an academically trained writer and researcher specializing in collaborative content strategy, creative copywriting, and editorial management. I work with entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and artists to curate and produce unique and innovative copy for brand development, marketing campaigns, promotional materials, blogs, journals, and magazines.

I'm passionate about activating cultural histories preserved within institutions and individuals whose experiences offer exclusive, valuable content for short- and long-form copy. Through my expertise in culling archives and conducting interviews, I compile one-of-a-kind informational resources for brands and artists. Equipped with these resources, I write and publish distinctive content that provides readers with an authentic and culturally engaging connection with a client's mission, products, and calls-to-action.

As a published author, I have been commissioned to write essays on art/literary criticism, queer theory, embodiment theory, and history & culture. I have also published a book of poetry, a chapbook of short stories, and have a third book of stories and essays coming out in 2019.
