Hi! Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Yara Simón. I am a Miami-born Nica-Cubana living in Los Angeles. I’m an editor, copyeditor, proofreader (knowledgeable in AP Style) and freelance content marketing writer with a decade of journalism experience. I specialize in Latinx culture, entrepreneurship and social justice issues. I have a track record of thoughtfully covering kick-ass women, underrepresented communities and small business owners. My work has appeared on Latino Leaders Magazine, Remezcla, Latina and more. I have also created content for Wells Fargo, HBO, Amtrak, Ulta and HBO.
While I don’t love the Oxford comma, I am accustomed to using it in my writing (not on this website, though!). I’m currently working on self-publishing books about Central America for my small business, La Joya Nicoya.
When I’m not writing or reading (check out what I’m reading here), I am watching “Doctor Who,” “Yuri!!! on Ice,” “The Great British Bake Off,” musicals and cheesy movies.
I attended the University of Florida, but sorry, I won’t ever respond to a Gator chomp because it’s pretty goofy.
I am available for writing or ghostwriting opportunities. Email me at yara @ yarasimon dot com.
