Hello! I’m Holly Bryant-Simpson, public relations/publicity mermaid, bookworm, Ravenclaw, & cat person.
By day, I am a publicist for Entangled Publishing‘s Select Historical, Scandalous, & Embrace imprints.
By night, or more accurately, by weekend, I am Lil’ Miss Rainbow, a clown and face painter.
I am experienced in the worlds of publishing, media, entertainment, not-for-profit, education, and agency public relations.
In 2014, I earned an M.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication, specializing in Public Relations, from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. My thesis, titled Students of Public Relations: Motivations and Career Aspirations used data from the Annual Surveys of Journalism & Mass Communication and was included in the presentation of the 2014 Annual Surveys at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication in Montreal, Canada.
My public relations and research interests include social media, pop culture, fandom/fan studies, stewardship, corporate social responsibility, diversity, and not-for-profit public relations. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, sewing and crafting, cooking, drinking coffee, and spending time with the people and cats I love.
