I published my first story in a major newspaper when I was 15, and I sold my first story to a national magazine a year later.

Since then, I have interviewed hundreds of entrepreneurs about their brands, and listened to stories from thousands of athletes, every day Joes and major CEOs. As a freelance writer, I’ve also pitched thousands of stories to editors at media outlets all over the world. I know what stories “stick.”

Today, I love helping brands and people tell their stories to other journalists, to other fans, and to their followers, but better. I also get really excited about people doing AWESOME work. In a time where we are inundated with products and info, telling and crafting meaningful stories is more important than ever.

Brands, people, PR firms and major agencies hire me to craft personal and company bios, press releases, media kits, book proposals, packaging, blogs, catalog copy, brand statements, social media plans, pitches, sales proposals, and other messaging to help them propel their businesses.

Sometimes I seek them out, but usually they find me. I work with them for a few months to a few years at a time to re-shift their media strategy, and help them tell their stories better. So far, it’s been a good run.
Here are a few of the clients I have or am working with now:


“Shelby Stanger kicks butt at helping brands tell their stories, better so they can sell their products. She helped Body Glove re-tell the brand’s 60 year old story to key media and influencers. She tightened our story, helped us focus, and in less than a year landed us the best media hits we’ve had from US Weekly to Surfer Magazine, Health, People, Shape and on some major social media influencers. She’s also a great writer, an awesome presenter and she has an ability to get everyone, and anyone excited about whatever she’s talking about. We are stoked to have worked with her.”
– Scott Daley,  VP of Marketing, Body Glove

“Shelby Stanger is my go-to freelancer. No matter the subject, she churns out smart, engaging copy with an insider voice. As an editor, she speaks my language.”
-Gillian Flynn, Editor in Chief, San Diego Riviera Magazine

“We are so fortunate to work with Shelby for many reasons. She has one of the best work ethics I have ever seen, she always gives 200%, she has exceptional follow through, is completely reliable, and she has an infectious personality that people love. I, and Shop-eat-surf, would be lost without her.”
-Tiffany Montgomery, Founder,
