Freelance writing services, Content Writer, Copy Writer, Ghost Writing, Playwrighting, Screenwriting, SEO content. All writing services to add a unique value for your publication, Web site and online presence from award winning journalist Benn Farrell.

My body of works range from outlandish situational comedies to heavy dramas and social statements. One through line from title to title is an emphasis on the human condition and humor. No matter how intense or dramatic a story may get, I always aspire to find a way to work a laugh into the material. I also feel I have a knack for writing material which actors can sink their teeth into, study and shine.
