Lori Diederich

Lori Diederich

Copywriter Extroardinaire

Lori is The Freelance Association’s free range copywriter, editor and general pinch hitter. When not cultivating copy, brandishing her little red pen or at bat for the community, she writes fiction, performs culinary experiments, and hangs out at coffee shops drinking anything but coffee–not usually at the same time. 
Having been in the Austin area since 1991, she may wax nostalgic now and then about how things used to be. She also doesn’t get south of the river much, but by the grace of GPS rarely gets lost.
