MaryBeth Matzek, aka 1BizzyWriter, is a freelance writer and editor based in Appleton, Wis. A proud graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she was a newspaper reporter and editor for The Post-Crescent in Appleton, Wis., for nearly a dozen years. In 2006, she started her own freelance writing and editing business, 1BizzyWriter. She contributes frequently to a variety of regional and state business and trade publications, including Insight on Business, Insight on Manufacturing, Wisconsin Builder Magazine, Wisconsin Law Journal, The Daily Reporter and The Milwaukee Business Journal. She also writes for several online sites, including Wispolitics.com, lifehack.org, and Wisconsin Health News. MaryBeth also provides writing, public relations, and social media services to several businesses and organizations in Northeast Wisconsin. If that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, she also is an adjunct instructor at Fox Valley Technical College where she teaches Written Communications. (Perhaps now you see where the name 1BizzyWriter comes from!)
When not writing, MaryBeth enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering for her children’s school and sports teams, and riding her bike.
