Who is Jennifer Mattern?
Jennifer Mattern, based in Southeast Pennsylvania, is a professional blogger, freelance business writer, independent Web publisher, and author of several e-books as well as books-in-progress.
With a background in public relations, marketing, and small business Jenn Mattern spent several years running a small PR firm specializing in digital PR and social media issues. She left consulting work behind in 2008 to focus on the writing side of her business. She first began independent writing work back in 1999.
Jennifer Mattern develops websites and manages blogs of her own as a way to diversify her business interests, writing about topics including freelance writing, social media, and small business. She also publishes e-books such as those in her Web Writer’s Guide series, is working on her first nonfiction book called The Query-Free Freelancer, and is in the process of developing a series of mystery novels.
Jenn Mattern is known for her blunt honesty and ability to think critically about modern issues in business, social media, and freelancing rather than jumping on every bandwagon that comes along. She is able to combine personality and passion into a successful business model of writing and independent Web publishing.
Jennifer Mattern also believes strongly in helping others reach their business goals, especially those pursuing business interests through independence. In addition to her work for freelancers and small business owners, she is currently developing two additional projects along these lines — IndieLounge.com (a group blog that will cover indie music, indie film, indie publishing, and independent workers) and IndiePublishing.co (a blog that will talk about the future of indie publishing both online and off, while detailing her own print indie publishing endeavor — the nonfiction book for freelance writers mentioned above).
