Sharon Glassman: Independent Journalist, Writer/Producer, Performer & VO
I ask “Why?” about style, the arts. Creativity. Entertainment. And information. And bring the answers to you in really fun ways. My work includes: reported features. Award-winning topical essays. Audio fiction.
And the time I sang about Twitter on a Broadway stage.
Helpful journalism about Big Ideas
I started my journalism career writing about the meaning of style. It’s something I’m still passionate about today. For instance: why do modern women try to descend escalators in stiletto heels? (Think: Venice).
My work explores complicated subjects in warmhearted ways.
Like, why music with a heartbeat rhythm – like Sinatra’s – can make us feel loved: WHYY’s The Pulse
Or what Work is in this wacky 2.0 world. Or how women can sleep better in it, without nasty drugs: Huffington Post
Or…how we can regain our focus so we can read things we’d love. If we could just, you know: focus. Publishing Perspectives
Ooh! And I really love creating topical audio essays with sound effects and songs:
Is Spring Overrated? (WUCX)
Here’s a crazy-sounding feature with a seriously helpful side: Singing Our Disagreements (Slack Variety Pack)
Speaking of different? I produce audio fiction you can taste:
I’m super-proud of this audio novel with songs. It’s been a podcast, a live show, and now, an audio book. And (blatant self-promotion. Oh, wait! This is my site. I guess that’s okay) it’s won some very nice prizes.
Hear ye: The Lazy Person’s Book Club, Blame It On Hoboken.
My voice acting is real, a tad raspy, wise, witty and warm:
Commercials? Yes, please. Narration? Love to. My vo reels.
Clients say: my voice is warm, welcoming, informative. My tone ranges from smooth to pleasantly raspy. I can speak quickly, clearly. I’m fun and very professional to work with. The talent agency GoVoices represents me.
Would you like my secret recipe for branded content? Here it is:
I deploy everything I’ve learned as a journalist, copywriter, voice over artist, performer, reporter on your behalf. And most of all? A keen listener. Put them together with a spark of Aha! And a whole lot of honesty audiences can feel, see and hear.
Last but not-not least!
I bake. Hate fake. Can’t rake. Live near a lake. Speak Italian. Write songs and sing. Play guitar and fiddle.
My hair is a many-splendored thing. And that’s a-right with me.
