Vanessa Grillone is a Freelance Writer and Social Media Reporter. She’s a small-town girl but tends to have one foot in the city. She loves books, notebooks, autumn air, traveling, date nights, family gatherings, black-and-white films, music she can dance to, a-line dresses she can twirl in, a fresh manicure, and a great cup of coffee.
My Pen, My Voice is a blog that Vanessa started in October of 2010. It’s the place that her lifestyle posts and book reviews call home. On her blog, Vanessa has worked with such brands as The Red Bow Shoppe, HTC Canada, Chapters Indigo, Penguin Random House Canada, Harper Collins Canada, Simon & Schuster Canada, Gelaskins (now Nuvango), Evolve Fitness, ecojot, Jonathan Adler, Clearly Contacts, Fresita Sparkling Wines, Toronto Eaton Centre, Tiny Prints and Shutterfly, Mattel, Tiny Devotions, The Vanity Events, Dogeared Jewels and Gifts, Roots Canada, Kno-bu, Minling Pan Studio, Spark Sessions, Nokia, and Samuel Adams.
Vanessa’s words have appeared on I Believe in Story, WorkStory, Casie Stewart, Words of Mystery, Open Book Toronto, Arianna’s Random Thoughts, Shutterfly, Tiny Devotions, and Not A Model Blog. She has two books under her belt and is working on a new novel that she hopes to finish before 2016.
She currently writes for Chic Darling, Passion8 Mag, and CanCulture Mag.
