Hi, I’m Stephen Thomas, and this is my content writing and copywriting portfolio.
I write content and copy, and have copyedited and proofread technical documents.
I’ve worked with some of the most interesting organizations in the world. Here are some of them:
Samples available upon request.
I’m currently a Science Writer at NYU’s Center for Data Science, a hub for data science, machine learning, and AI.
The Forecasting Research Institute “develop[s] forecasting methods to improve decision-making on high-stakes issues.” I helped them write up the results of their Existential Risk Persuasion Tournament.
For the AI Safety Field Building Hub, I helped edit an interactive website designed to educate AI researchers on AI safety.
Arb Research is a consultancy in the effective altruism space. For Arb I helped write and edit a piece on the merits of prediction markets that is forthcoming in Works in Progress, an overview of AI talent for the Mercatus Center and the UK government, and worked on a series of posts for The Quantified Uncertainty Research Institute (QURI).
The Astera Institute is a metascience and frontier science nonprofit. I helped out with the copy on their website.
Resource Movement is a wealth redistribution org. I worked with them on an open letter advocating for a wealth tax in Canada to offset the likely job loss from coming advances in AI.
Reforge is an online business education company. I wrote copy for them.
Sandbox Agency creates multimedia content for clients such as BC Works, British Columbia’s government employment service. For Sandbox I scripted a video about how to do virtual job interviews. Here is Sandbox's write-up of it, with the video.
PhotoGAUGE has created a technology that delivers state-of-the-art measurements via smartphone cameras. I did social media for them.
Innovate USA is the American branch of Innovations of the World, which produces collections of profiles of entrepreneurs. I interviewed dozens of entrepreneurs based in Miami, Salt Lake City, New Jersey, and elsewhere, and wrote profiles of them. I also helped these same entrepreneurs craft Thought Leader pieces for the same publication.
Probe International is a climate change NGO. I wrote website copy, blog posts, and newsletters for them.
George Brown College is a college in Toronto that I taught writing at from 2015-2018. I interviewed the program coordinators of every certificate program in the college and translated what they said about their programs into concise information sheets. This is one example.
Joyland Magazine is a literary magazine with editors all over North America. I helped Joyland out with marketing and publicity, especially around the time the editors were launching The Blondes Podcast.
Keisha Mabry is a professional networker and events speaking coach. I wrote copy for her promotional materials.
I used to write product descriptions for the Walmart subsidiary Hayneedle.
