Lesley Grigg

Freelance Writer & Author 

Teacher, traveler, actor, agent, the list of professions and passions is long, but the one constant so far in my life is the love of writing. From freelance projects to corporate nine-to-fives, I've found a way to keep the joy of writing alive. 


With an Elementary Education degree from the Pennsylvania State University and background spanning the entertainment industry in and around Philadelphia, I've been active in the classroom and on and off the stage, screen, and writing desk. 


Some of my writing experience is outlined below, along with a collection of related clips. More examples, endorsements, and recommendations are included on my LinkedIn profile. You can also contact me for additional references if needed.
