Jeremy Klaszus is a Calgary journalist and ghost writer who specializes in people stories.

He’s written about everyone from prominent CEOs to a suffering softball dad who robbed a bank. His stories have been published in Swerve, Reader’s Digest, the Globe and Mail and Alberta Views, among other publications. The people Jeremy writes about often thank him afterward for the care with which he shares their stories. The quality of his writing has been recognized with numerous accolades, including two National Magazine Awards, three Western Magazine Awards and a 2013 gold Alberta Magazine Award.

In 2010, Jeremy co-authored a bestselling book with the legendary western singer Ian Tyson. The National Post praised it as being “written with the same plain-spoken elegance as Tyson’s most famous records.” Jeremy also wrote a memoir about his own grandfather which appears in the anthology Cabin Fever: The Best New Canadian Non-Fiction.

By listening carefully to his subject’s voice, Jeremy can identify the trajectory of a person’s life and put it into words, weaving together a powerful story that resonates with both the subject and a broader audience.

Jeremy currently works full-time in the not-for-profit sector. He writes the occasional freelance story on the side, and also writes a column for Metro Calgary.
