Dave Jarecki’s Bio
“A writer is always writing, no matter
what his or her hand is doing.”
DAVE JARECKI is the grandson of northeastern Pennsylvanian coalminers, and feels their work in his blood sometimes. He’s been writing professionally since 1998, including articles, profiles, non-profit grants and marketing communications.
In 2004 Jarecki founded Breakerboy Communications, a strategic writing and messaging service that focuses on the communications needs of small businesses and non-profit organizations. Jarecki also facilitates youth and adult creative writing workshops and independent studies throughout the Greater Portland area. His creative work has appeared in Voices of Central Pennsylvania, IN/UR Magazine, BaseballSavvy.com, Poet’s Hood online and 4&20 Poetry.
In July of 2008 he launched DaveJarecki.com as a way to help foster conversation and community around writing and the word. Through the Guest Writer feature and Interview series, Jarecki wishes to showcase the writing, thoughts and insights of new and established voices alike.
Jarecki and his wife Courtney, whom he met on a porch swing, live in Portland, Oregon, with Satchel, a Rhodesian Ridgeback who chose the couple via email, and Maji, a mystery hound. He intends to launch his pitching comeback any day now.
