Alex LevitonLong-time (35 books and counting) Lonely Planet author and writer. Former editorial director and start-up co-founder. Master of Journalism from UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. I also help writers, students and organizations find and develop their voice.
If it requires the expert use of words, I’ve done it professionally: author and Lonely Planet writer, editorial consultant and communications strategist, writing instructor, coach, developmental editor, and one-time standup comic. I will help you find your voice. In fact, I’m currently writing a book about such things.

Alex is an outrageous and brilliant coach and consultant … she intuitively asked the right questions. … I give her the highest recommendation and I am really picky.
Her ‘Finding Your Voice’ exercises completely changed the way I view my professional writing style… her knowledge and passion for her art form is enormous.
Alex has an incisive mind that cuts through the static. She has gently but powerfully nudged me in the direction of clarity and purpose.
