My name is Matt Grant, and I'm a writer.

I write about all kinds of things, from personal essays and investigative features to all forms of culture - books, movies and television

I'm also a staff writer at Literary Hub, where I write features and profiles on booksellers and bookstores

Need a copywriter or content marketer for your blog or website? Yep, I do that too!


 
Matt Grant has all things you want in a reporter: curiosity, attention to detail, a good sense of story, and the ability to do it all quickly and on deadline!

As an editor for a book review, I need writers who are nimble, fresh, creative, and intelligent, who can meet deadlines, accept editorial criticism, and revise their work with polish and sensitivity. In short, I need a writer like Matt Grant.
— Joseph Salvatore, Books Editor, The Brooklyn Rail
 
Matt has a wonderful way with words, transforming my jumbled ideas into clear, concise statements. I highly value his contribution as copy editor.
