About freelance writer Hope Katz Gibbs
“I wanted to be a writer since I was 8 years old,” says journalist Hope Katz Gibbs, a freelance writer who made her dream come true. “As a kid I always loved to write poems and short stories. Then one day my dad read something I had written for him and said, ‘boy honey, you really have a talent for this.’ That support was all it took to set me on my path.”
After graduating from the Annenberg School of communications at the University of Pennsylvania in 1986, Hope worked on the staff of a handful of publications (including working as an assistant editor / writer at The Miami Herald and an associate editor / writer at New Miami magazine).
In 1991, she went back to grad school for a degree in educational leadership at The George Washington University, and upon finishing launched her freelance career. Her articles appeared in The Washington Post, USA Today, The Washington Times, Crystal City magazine, Global Business magazine, and dozens of other business, education, alumni, and general interest publications.
