Claire Zulkey

Reporter, essayist and content marketing writer for hire.

About Me

If you need a deep dive feature, a tight Q&A, a reported essay, a fundraising letter, creative content or even just a fresh set of eyes, I can help you. Finding sources, becoming an expert, digging up the angle, writing in a signature voice--and doing it all on time and professionally--is what I'm all about. My editors can speak to my dogged reporting, clear writing, good turns of phrase and, I hope, decent humanity. I can use these skills and passions to help with your writing or editing-related need. I live and work in Evanston, IL, where I'm the mother of two small boys.

Good and Upsetting? Free Speech at the Law School

Free speech has always been a tricky endeavor. But in recent years, as campuses have become more diverse and students have become more vocal in pushing for policies that foster inclusion, the biggest challenges have stemmed from the delicate balance between making all students feel welcome and preserving the free exchange of ideas.

The Sex Talk: Earlier is Better

No rational parent looks forward to the idea of speaking to her young child about sexuality, but no rational parent looks forward to getting her child to brush his teeth or get his shoes on in a hurry, either. But these things have to get done, because this is how you raise a human.
