bio & experience
Patricia Martin is a creative-minded freelance writer and editor whose work has been published in Shine Text, Black Girl Nerds, AZ Magazine, and Go Magazine, among others. She is the creator and CEO of the culture and lifestyle blog and brand, The Glam Femme, which has been featured on several online platforms for its focus on accessible fashion, social justice, and diversity. With The Glam Femme, Patricia has also created a series called “Femme Voices”, which spotlights QTPOC artists and entrepreneurs and their contributions to society.
Patricia has always had a passion for helping people, which led her to a career in counseling and social services. With a strong desire to make a greater difference than she could with her BA in Psychology, Patricia pursued her J.D. and earned licenses to practice law in two states. As she continues to expand her resume, she currently holds a position as a policy writer in the compliance field and serves as a copy editor for travel brand, The Runaway. Throughout her professional career of 13 years, she has honed her skills in many forms of technical writing, drafting, and editing.
In addition to writing in the social services and legal fields, Patricia has been writing fiction ever since she can remember and has been writing for her own blog and others for the past 3 years. She is committed to providing services to other creatives who don’t have the time, the desire, or the patience to create written content that will allow them to reach their desired audiences and get their messages across.
To this end, Patricia not only contributes freelance articles to publications, she writes biographies/about pages and blog articles and provides blog, website, and book proofreading and editing services via The Glam Femme Writing Services.
Besides achieving her educational goals, Patricia considers her biggest accomplishment to be allowing herself to get to a place in life where she felt ready to pursue her dreams and then actually going for them. Being influenced by her mother and grandmother, who emigrated from Jamaica and became entrepreneurs and professionals, Patricia wishes to not only provide excellent services to her clients but also inspire them to know that the sky is the limit when it comes to reaching their goals and that there is no time like today.
