Will Pollock

Freelance Multimedia Journalist, Author, YouTuber, Professional Content Guy

I'm a proud freelance multimedia journalist skilled in many forms of storytelling.

From arts, entertainment, culture, technology and travel—to personal development, real estate, retail, media analysis and celebrity-profile pieces—I can help you tell your story. I also assist companies in strengthening brand messaging and creating expert custom content.

My motto is "always tell stories" because behind every person, event and destination there's always a tale waiting to be told.

Currently accepting assignments for magazine, web, ghost writing, corporate communications, human interest, guest blogging and op-ed pieces.

Please check out my blog at CrankyYank.com and my charity effort, ARTvisionATL.org.
