About Steve Higgins
A Strong Foundation in Journalism
I was an avid reader long before I became a professional writer. Good writers know what readers want – enjoyable stories about interesting people. Preferably delivered with clarity, brevity and accuracy.
As a freelance writer since 2007, I draw on more than two decades of experience as a daily newspaper reporter and editor to produce compelling content for businesses and nonprofits. I previously worked at daily newspapers in Georgia, Arizona, Florida and New England, most recently as business editor of the New Haven Register in Connecticut.
As a newspaper reporter, my greatest satisfaction came from writing stories that had a real impact on individuals and the community. As a freelance business writer, my greatest satisfaction comes from producing content that makes a real impact for my clients.
Most of my experience has been as a financial writer and business editor. Early in my journalism career I realized that I had a particular affinity for speaking with business people, understanding their concerns and conveying their message. I also enjoy writing about health care, issues affecting the elderly, and the efforts of nonprofit organizations.
Today I help business owners, professionals, institutions, nonprofit organizations and publication editors communicate effectively with their own clients, their own employees, and with the larger community.
