Hi, I'm Heide Brandes!

All those writing projects that take up so much of your time? I can do that for you.

Need a reliable reporter and writer for a media story? I can do that for you too.

I am a writer and copywriter based in Oklahoma City, and I love to write! I specialize in business, aerospace, agriculture, travel, health and human interest stories.

I am a journalist with more than 15 years experience, and after spending 12 of those years as an award-winning writer and editor in newspaper, I branched out into the wild and fun world of helping others meet their copywriting and editorial needs.

My work has been featured in such magazines as OKC Biz, The Oklahoma Journal Record, Outdoor x 4 Magazine, Forbes, Pink Pangea, GoNomad, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, The Washington Post, Yahoo News, The Chicago Tribune, The New York Daily News, TrailGroove Magazine, Destinations Travel Magazine, Splurge! OK, Tulsa/OKC Pets, Neighbors (the international magazine of the global non-profit World Neighbors), ION Oklahoma and more!

Find my "Copywriting" link on my samples page to view professional jobs. From postcard copy to full annual reports, I can take those projects and make them golden for you.
