Uncommon Grounds: Marty Skovlund Jr [Coffee with Writers]
In this series, we sat down with Marty Skovlund, Jr. and discussed his passion for storytelling. Specifically, we talked about when writing became an outlet for him, the struggle with finding your voice as a writer, the confidence required to write a good story, and transferring that passion to paper.
Marty Skovlund, Jr. is the executive editor of Coffee or Die Magazine. As a journalist, Marty has covered the Standing Rock protest in North Dakota, embedded with American special operation forces in Afghanistan, and has broke stories about the first females to make it through infantry training and Ranger selection. He has also published two books, appeared as a co-host on History Channel’s JFK Declassified, and has produced multiple award-winning independent films.
