Hi! My name is Emma Klug, and I’m a metro Detroit-based writer and editor. Currently, I am a senior editor and digital content coordinator at Hour Detroit magazine.

In my position at Hour Detroit, I write, edit, and assign, a variety of print and web content (email me at klugemma@gmail.com with pitches and tips!). I also serve as a proofreader for the magazine’s print publication, manage the print and digital workflow for the magazine, and lead the editorial web internship program.

Since graduating from Columbia College Chicago in 2014 with a degree in journalism, I’ve written profiles on small business owners, columns about art exhibits, long reads on health, and explainer articles on new community developments and current events. Along with Hour Detroit, My work has been published in DBusiness magazine, Metro Detroit Weddings magazine, Snips magazine, Flexible Packaging magazine, my former blog, The Style Note, and more.

I’ve also had the chance to create social media content, edit work by student journalists and longtime freelancers, photograph events, collaborate with art teams on photo shoots, serve as on-air talent for video, oversee fact checking, and launch e-newsletters and other digital initiatives.
