Welcome to my website! I am your host, Jay Michaels. I have almost 10 years of experience writing journalistic clips, features and enterprise stories. This started after several years of working as a social worker.

How I can help
Learning the steps and the business behind journalism, as well as talking to several people about current events, allowed me to understand how important journalism is in today’s world. We can’t just rely on someone’s opinion as the basis for our own. Hence, I started writing for several publications, interviewing people, and getting facts from many different reliable sources. This combination helped me create clips and stories that you can find on my Journalistic Clips and Stories pages on this site. Knowing how to share facts to which people pay attention is something that allowed me to excel in the field.
I am always happy to help any publication’s staff members get the story they need to share with readers. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find me on my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
