Work With Me

Hi, I’m August Pfizenmayer, the founder and editor of Survival is a Talent. I’m a freelance writer, blogger, and student studying Journalism at the University of North Georgia.

A personal essay about my life with a mental illness is published in The i’Mpossible Project: Changing Minds, Breaking Stigma, Achieving the Impossible (Volume 2) by Josh Rivedal and 50 authors. My poetry has been published in Georgia’s Best Emerging Poets. Both anthologies can be purchased in stores or online:

You can find my writing online at websites including The Mighty, Thought Catalog, and Voices of Mental Health. I specialize in lifestyle and personal improvement, as well as health and wellness.

A lot of the work I do is writing sponsored blog posts, but I also worked as the social media manager for Masterpiece Mixers John’s Creek and Author Eddie Kedge. I recently founded The Writer’s Guide to Life.

Below are some brands I’ve worked with:
