Tell us a bit about yourself, where you went to school, your hobbies, why you're a creative professional, etc.

I'm a graduate of Montclair State University with a major in English, minor in Journalism. I've served as an editor/writer at several trade magazines, consumer magazines, and a children's book publisher.

What is your concentration within the creative community? (Graphic Design, Web Design, Copywriting, etc.)

writing and editing

What are your professional goals?

To either start up my own business (either a Web-based platform or perhaps a series of highly targeted e-newsletters) or assist a like-minded entrepreneur doing the same.

Where do you currently work, and what do you do there?

As editor-in-chief on one mag, I establish the overall tone, assign stories, write features, plus serve as the chief copy editor and proofreader. As editorial director of the other mag, I write all the copy, procure photos, copy edit, and proofread.

List your on-line portfolio.


Hi, my name is Linda Longo. I'm the editor-in-chief of a trade magazine covering the lighting/home furnishings industry and the editorial director of a trade magazine focused on the hospitality, boutique retail, and restaurant market.
