AARON BRACY


Work samples

I have published more than a thousand stories in 17 years as a sportswriter, copy editor and sports editor for several publications.

 

As a freelancer since 2008, publications I have written for include the Philadelphia Inquirer, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Herald, Tampa Tribune, St. Louis Post-Dispatch and ESPN.com. I also am a regular contributor to the Associated Press in Philadelphia and New Jersey.

 

I also have experience writing press releases, and creating brochures and media guides as a communications assistant.

 

As an editor, I am an expert in AP style and passed the Philadelphia Inquirer’s copy editing examination.
