Hey, I’m
Elisa Szweda,
a creative writer.

A resident of Hong Kong since 2005, I bring a wealth of expertise and experience to my writing endeavors. With a J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law and an A.B. cum laude in political science from Duke University, I am detail-oriented, organized, and a self-starter. My legal background and communication skills enable me to identify areas in need of policy development and/or  improved communications. I have used my strengths to help a variety of volunteer and not-for-profit community organizations, including the Hong Kong International School's Booster Club, a Hong Kong registered charity. As a VP of Communications for five years, I designed and executed comprehensive communications addressed to diverse stakeholders, fostering engagement and transparency. I have also contributed my skills to community initiatives and fundraising campaigns. 

Beyond my legal background, I have a long-standing fascination with the visual and culinary arts. (If I could press "rewind", I would double-major in art history.) I pride myself on finding beauty in unexpected places and in small things.


Curious about people and keen to hear about their journeys and experiences, I immerse myself in stories, meticulously researching and capturing the essence of each narrative. I am adept at weaving together the threads of diverse experiences to craft compelling content that both draws readers in and conveys substantive information.

Whether you need a feature article, engaging blog posts, or informative content for your organization/website, I want to work with you to bring your vision to life and help you achieve your goals.
