Hi, I’m Sara.
I’m a writer, editor and advocate for mothers, parents and reproductive justice.
I’m on the Board of Improving Birth and I’ve worked with Birth Monopoly on fundraising, media, content creation and editing. I’ve been a professional communicator and writer for more than fifteen years after graduating from the University of Iowa. I’m the former editor of Skirt Magazine in Jacksonville and have experience as a newspaper reporter and section editor for The Florida Times-Union. I also do work in public relations and marketing.
I was a member of the undergraduate Iowa Writers’ Workshop in fiction and I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Iowa, where I double majored in English and Journalism & Mass Communications, worked at the school newspaper and edited the school’s literary magazine. In addition to working in media, I’ve worked in healthcare and non-profit development and communications across the U.S.
At 16 years old, I started out working for The Argus, the City of Fremont’s newspaper in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I was born and raised. (I was also the Arts Editor for the school newspaper, The Smoke Signal.) I interned at JANE Magazine in New York City and I was a reporter and writer for The Daily Iowan and Bay Area Business Woman News.
I’m available for writing, editing, speaking and creative projects. See more of my work at SaraRConrad.com
