Ian Mikrut is a writer, editor, and freelance copywriter based in Philadelphia.
Prior to landing in Philly I spent most of my life on the other side of the state in Pittsburgh along with a brief stint living as a Florida Man™ in Jacksonville. Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to contribute to a variety of regional publications as a journalist while honing my skills as a freelance copywriter for brands and marketing agencies.
A lot of my writing and reporting has touched on local culture – from craft alcohol and the makers movement in American cities, profiles of artists and business owners, to reflective essays about specific experiences. I’m passionate about discovering and telling new stories, which can also mean helping brands better communicate their messages through creative and effective copywriting.

Below are a few recent samples of my work as a writer in Philadelphia, Jacksonville, and elsewhere.
As a freelance copywriter I’ve also worked with brands and companies in a variety of industries, including media production, craft alcohol, higher education, nonprofits, coffee, finance, tech, health & wellness, and more.
I write and edit web copy, ads, client blogs, newsletters, video scripts, and produce other print and digital content while utilizing SEO best practices.
