Natalya Grabavoy

Copywriter, Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer

Innovative, witty, creative. Experienced writer with a demonstrated history of working in online, digital media.

I'm a freelance copywriter with a uniquely comedic background! If you are seeking copy that captures individual brand voice, or connects to your audience through refreshing humor and personality, these are my areas of expertise!

I have written for numerous popular publications such as The Everygirl, Reductress, and Babe.net (Tab Media), and held various marketing and communications roles. My widely-read, and SEO-based articles have successfully driven site traffic, receiving hundreds of thousands of views across social media, and tens of thousands of likes and shares.

In addition to my communications work, I completed the highly-acclaimed Second City Conservatory program, and went on to perform with the Second City House Company, where I mastered my skills in writing original, topical comedy and satire.

When not writing or performing , I am most likely traveling overseas (preferably escaping Chicago winter). As a result of the numerous travel pieces I have written for The Everygirl, I was chosen to speak on a travel panel for Away Luggage, where I will be sharing my solo travel expertise (Chicago, August 2019). Along with my travels, I am constantly broadening my skills in photography and film!
