I’m Laura Leebove, a Michigan-born, Brooklyn-based copywriter, editor, content marketer, and voracious consumer of media, food, and music.
I began my career as a music writer, but eventually found that what was once my dream job … wasn’t. It was scary! I ultimately realized I wanted to use my journalism background to help great companies tell their stories.
As a senior copywriter at the tech education company General Assembly, I dove headfirst into marketing copy, content marketing, and more. I look forward to bringing my learnings from my time there to my next endeavor. I’m actively seeking a new position as a copywriter, content marketer, editor, or similar role, and would love to hear from you!
Before making the move to copywriting, I was managing editor at the Brooklyn real estate site Brownstoner. Prior to that I spent five years at the digital music retailer eMusic, the last year of which I was managing editor of Wondering Sound (RIP). I also founded a food and music blog Eating the Beats, where I created recipes inspired by music, and I co-founded/co-produced a seasonal event series in NYC called Supper Studio, which involved an intimate concert and multicourse meal inspired by the band playing.
I’ve been a regular contributor to Billboard and several now-defunct publications (The Village Voice, AOL’s Spinner.com and VenusZine, among others), and have been published in various other outlets including Men’s Journal, The Billfold, Brooklyn Magazine, Brooklyn Based, Under the Radar, Heeb Magazine, and more.
