My name is Britt Johnsen. I’m a Minnesota native, professional writer and editor, and a multidisciplinary creator.
In my career as a multimedia writer and editor, I’ve amassed a sizeable toolbox of skills in connecting with audiences and stakeholders. This includes, but is by no means limited to:
- Content strategy and planning
- News reporting and writing
- Magazine writing
- Website creation
- Content management systems
- Analytics reporting
- Newsletter creation
- Social media content creation
- Video script writing and editing
- Basic graphic design
- Media relations
- Public speaking
My writing has appeared in the Pioneer Press, Star Tribune, Yahoo Finance and nytimes.com. I’ve won more than a dozen awards and honors from the Associated Press, National Society of Professional Journalists and the New York Times Company Foundation, among other organizations. To read a more detailed list about my accomplishments and positions, please meet me on LinkedIn.
In my free time, I pursue an eclectic mix of interests. I’m a certified yoga teacher who has taught at several studios around the Twin Cities; I now write about the healing arts for a website I created called Home Studio. I also love music (for two years I played the washboard in a jug band with my friend and mentor David Hanners; now I maintain his music website that I created). I can be found cheering on my friends who play with North Star Roller Derby teams. And I’m obsessed with my cats Kylee, a 16-pound boy who is so sweet and cuddly, and Mittens, a polydactyl girl with a particular taste in humans.
