Jodi DeLong has been a professional freelance writer for over a decade. Although she does some corporate writing for websites and businesses, she especially relishes storytelling, particularly to do with gardening, cats, or bouncing around the North Atlantic on a coast guard ship. She is a contributing writer for Saltscapes magazine, garden columnist for the Halifax Sunday Herald, and the Atlantic Co-operator, and author of The Atlantic Gardener’s Greenbook. She gives regular talks on gardening, occasional workshops on the pleasures and challenges of being a freelance writer, and takes most of the photographs that accompany her stories.
Her work has been published in numerous regional, national and international publications. Along with writing for the public, she has worked with many business clients, and handles social media for over a dozen businesses in Nova Scotia. She maintains two websites for gardeners, Bloominganswers.com and bloomingwriter.blogspot.com.
Jodi is also editor, photographer, reporter, designer and go-fer of The Canning Gazette, a tiny but beloved monthly community paper in Canning, NS, a post she has lovingly held for more than 15 years.
