ALECS IANKO

Chief Business Officer

My 25-year experience in the industry has pushed me to become a Jane-of-all-trades when it comes to content. During my career, I have been lucky to receive many opportunities to work as a TV news editor-in-chief, a magazine chief editor, an online writer, SEO specialist, and content manager. My primary roles here at Iris Writing International are in content sales, SEO, content strategy, and as a team leader.

 

I am passionate about what we do here because I witness content changing companies daily. Brands and organizations depend on content to communicate their message, set themselves apart, and create brand awareness and royalty. Iris is here to help you achieve those goals and I can’t wait to connect with you.

I am a copywriter from Wisconsin who is obsessed with the art of copy. I have extensive experience in marketing, content strategy, and I have worked as an editor-in-chief for various magazines.


The sum of my experiences allowed me to hone my skills and use my years of content creation to the benefit of our clients.

 

No matter the topic or the audience, I have a strong story to tell and I look forward to delivering the perfect copy that captivates your readers.

I have been writing for the past 20 years. My career started as a newsroom editor and webbed through all the writing areas, including industry politics, lifestyle, and social.

 

I have had the opportunity to work for several high-profile U.S based companies which taught me to go beyond content and looking for what helps the reader engage.

 

My experiences have taught me how to identify what each client needs and creating unique content to help each and every client achieve their goals.

I have always been fascinated with the art of writing. Even from a young age, I spent a lot of time writing down my words through journals, poetry, and even short stories. I jumped into the industry by ghostwriting fiction, non-fiction, and technical eBooks for clients through a ghostwriting service.

 

As my confidence grew, I branched outward and have found my true calling.

 

My passion for learning is what fuels the commitments I make to my clients, producing exciting and unique content every time.

Chantel%20site_edited.jpg

I began my writing career at a startup music magazine in 2010. After spending 2 years in music journalism (where I saw some VERY cool concerts and interviewed some amazing artists), I moved into copywriting so I could learn about countless different industries – all while putting my writing skills to good use.

 

In the past ten years, I’ve written for wedding planners, universities, international think tanks, and a whole lot more.

 

I love what I do, and I am dedicated to giving my clients the perfect copy with every assignment.

Chantel Simmons

Senior Copywriter

119457528_246283789988803_43876115791417

I am an experienced entrepreneur, writer, and mentor to startups. After earning my degree in Creative Writing, I entered the business world, where I worked in Business Development, Marketing, and PR for global companies. 

 

Driven by my passion for content, I started writing more and moving away from the corporate structure.

 

I have developed content for multiple eBooks, children's books, countless articles, websites, and social media for the past five years. I have found myself gravitating toward content marketing, where I now specialize.

Maria Howard

Marketing Advisor

I have been writing professionally for over ten years and have found my love of art in topics such as science, technology, engineering, security, and finance.

 

I am convinced that I would have made a world-class tight-rope-walker since I spend a lot of my time balancing all my personal projects. I live on the sun-kissed shores of the Caribbean island of Trinidad.

 

I spend my free time exploring the history, culture,  and beaches of this locale.

Jason Dookeran

Content Specialist

Syed Muhammad Khan

I have a deep passion for writing, biology, and history. My romance with the world of content started when I took up the opportunity to write for WWF’s Natura magazine, following which I also joined Ancient History Encyclopedia (now World History Encyclopedia) and Mashable.

 

Through these platforms, I created engaging content about everyday science, modern lifestyle, health, history, and nature conservation and attracted thousands of readers. My aim, from day one, has been to inform and inspire people through my words. I realized the power of words early on in my life and was super-excited when I joined Iris Writing International. Here, I have collaborated with a team of like-minded and highly dedicated content creators to weave together words that inspire.

Content Specialist

I've always loved writing and helping individuals and businesses to convey their stories to their audiences. Based on my island home of Barbados, I've worked as a business journalist, digital coordinator, and web content writer and editor.

 

Throughout my career, I've written for both print publications and online platforms on a range of topics including law, social media, marketing, health, fashion, and travel.

I enjoy learning about my clients' businesses and helping them to attract, engage and retain customers and clients.

Senior Copyeditor

Silvia Constantin

I can’t think of a moment when I was not writing – anything from little silly poems to a Sci-Fi story published in my high school magazine.

 

I decided to become a copywriter after venturing in the corporate world. It taught me valuable lessons, but it simply was not what I could picture myself doing for the rest of my life. I realized that I am not and never will be a “suit”.

 

I enjoy working with people, but I am at my best with a keyboard in front of me, crafting texts that help companies communicate their business values and marketing messages. 

Content Specialist

I’ve been passionate about writing since I wrote my own children’s book with my mom at the age of 5, but it wasn’t until much later that I realized I could actually make a career out of it.

 

After trying college three times but not finding the passion to stick with a major, I got back to my writing. While short stories and prose are my creative passions, I found a career path that I loved in content writing and copy editing. Over the last decade, I’ve held both writing and editing positions for big brands and have helped many entrepreneurs and small businesses build their websites and sell their products. My natural organizational skills and attention to detail help me produce quality work for a wide range of clients.
