Hire Me


I'm a Bay Area freelance writer who loves to write about craft, design, DIY, lifestyle, and popular culture. I have a handy-dandy MFA from California College of the Arts, where I completed a poetry manuscript and a series of creative nonfiction essays. These days, I'm focusing on the wonderful world of online writing and blogging, as well as copywriting and product marketing.

In 2010, I became the lead writer for ReadyMade's craft blog, Make Nice. Since then, I've contributed to Vianza, IndieFixx, ManMadeDIY, Etsy, Wikia Easy Crafts, and a handful of other online publications. I've also explored the science of happiness for Delivering Happiness and highlighted handmade products for online shop Modern Mouse.

If you think I'd be a good fit for your publication or company, please contact me at polly dot conway at gmail dot com. For samples of my work, please take a look at my portfolio here!
