Oh, hey. 

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

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

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.
