Professional Communication With a Personal Touch

Hi my name is Joe Starr and I am a writer, editor and journalist specializing in content for health, fitness and wellness organizations. I started my business StarrWriter to join my passion for being active with my love of writing and helping businesses grow through smart communication. I’ve worked the past 20 years in newspaper journalism as a reporter, editor and designer, and most recently as a marketing and public relations specialist for corporate and public sector organizations. First and foremost I'm a writer. It's a talent I have been fortunate enough to make my career and it has served me and those I have worked with well. 

The web designers, web developers, graphic designers, photographers, editors, creatives and fellow writers I partner with are all top talents in their respective disciplines. Like me, they love what they do and take pride in their work.

Ongoing education is a core value at StarrWriter and one I see as a main ingredient to continued success. Constantly changing marketing techniques and digital media platforms demonstrate why we always need to be learning. I dedicate time to professional development and education. I am a member of the American Marketing Association, its local Madison, Wisconsin chapter as well as other professional organizations.

Free time is spent with my best friend and wife Sarah. We love to travel, and fitness and the outdoors are often part of those travels. We both love to run and have participated in many great races here in the Midwest. I try to give back to the running community by volunteering at area races and I enjoy the camaraderie of fellow runners as a member of a few of our local running groups.

I am happy that you stopped by and look forward to meeting you. Please call or email me so we can schedule a time to talk. Until then have a great day.
