Mark Wedel

Content Writer / Photographer / Social Media
Kalamazoo, MI

Mark Wedel has worked as a freelance journalist since 1992. He supplied arts and entertainment features and reviews to the Kalamazoo Gazette for over two decades. Other publications using his work include Delta Sky Magazine, Cleveland Scene, Grand Rapids Press, and Etch Magazine. He is currently writing for Issues Media Group publications in Michigan’s Second Wave Media network. He’s written about a mind-numbingly wide range of subjects including standup comedy, invasive species, Upper Peninsula tourism, long-distance cycling, music from punk to classical, film and theatre, diversity and equity issues, etc. He’s dogged as a researcher, but feels the art of the interview is just as important at bringing to life a subject in print.
