John Bray is a Chicago based freelance writer and author. He’s constantly toeing the line between creative and technical writing while looking for a place to display his well-crafted words so that others can benefit from them. He has a Bachelors of Science in English and enjoys striped socks.


John treats everything like it’s a piece of creative writing because any piece of writing lacking creativity isn’t worth reading. What does that mean? Well, think of what would happen if Hemingway wrote a white paper or a case study. Now take out a bunch of the fluff while keeping a bit of that literary finesse.

He’s written everything from case studies and white papers, to short fiction and a children’s book.


You need words, John writes words. Yes, anyone can write but not just anyone can write. John’s educational background in creative writing blends with his professional background in technical communication, marketing strategy, and branding to him a unique mix of professionalism and prose.


Anywhere. The Internet is the place for everything and web copy is of utmost importance, but print isn’t dead. John welcomes opportunities in consumer magazines, trade journals, literary journals, and online extensions of print publications.
