Hello, my name is Arilia Winn and I am the Founder and CEO of Winn Publications. I have been in the writing/social media industry for close to 8 years (on and off) and I love it! My interest was sparked in High School as I was a journalist for the school paper. I did that for a year and then in 2008, I graduated and went to San Francisco State University to pursue my journalism dreams. While there I also took some really fun classes like Fashion Writing, PR, and social media marketing.
At one point I had hopes and dreams of working for Vogue or starting my own fashion magazine. Hence why it was only natural for me to pick up a writing gig as a fashion writer for SFSU’s fashion department. It gave me the break that I needed to get away from the mundane introverted pyramid news writing style that my JOUR 200 classes required.
Having too much fun in the City, I moved from San Francisco to Santa Ana in 2011. I went to Santa Ana College and took journalism and fashion classes. There I also worked on the school paper and really got good at Adobe InDesign. My professor believed that we needed to learn it all in order to be a well-rounded and well-respected journalist. In 2012, I graduated with my Associates and went on to finish my undergrad in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Attending the Bethune-Cookman University Fall of 2012, I studied Mass Communications. Being the new girl anywhere is pretty intimidating so I found my place in the Wildcats Roar, the school paper and 99.1 FM, BCU’s radio station. For two years I was an editor, layout director, and Gospel DJ. Again, I was in love.
I got pregnant my senior year and graduated in 2014. That same year I worked for a small publications firm where I edited manuscripts containing over 30,000 words for $300 per project. It was a great learning experience, to say the least.
From 2014 to 2016, I played around with social media managing and promoting for a nightclub, a couple of Hip-Hop DJs, rap artists and a small business.
It was during those years that I learned so much and it’s because of those experiences that I am able to offer winning services through Winn Publications.
