Hello

Hey! Glad you're here. My name is Bella Gelfuso, and I am the founder and sole proprietor of The Autumn Article. I'm a freelance writer, editor, and lover of all things that remind me of my favorite season. I received my Bachelors of Arts in the beautiful Pacific Northwest at Western Washington University, and graduated with an English degree with a Creative Writing Emphasis.

Alright, so Here's the Full Story...

I've always wanted to be the ambassador of my own brand, ever since I was a teen. I had so many ideas for what I wanted to do, what kind of products I wanted to sell, what kind of books I wanted to write, even where I might want to set up shop if I were to open my own store. Of course, my ideas drastically changed as I grew older, but what remained the same was the core belief that I could publish these great stories and flourish in my own creative brand. However, my university had other plans for me. I threw myself into my studies to learn more, and as I was writing for my college, I had little to no time to write for myself. Of course, I was passionate about honing my craft, so it didn't bother me too much. On top of that, I was able to edit and listen to stories and other various pieces that my peers and fellow students had written, and I adored hearing the worlds that they had created. I wanted nothing more than to see them succeed in this competitive career field, and I was honored to help them in the editorial process. I knew that it would all be worth it to take what knowledge I had earned and put it towards my own dreams. Once I had graduated, I got a little sidetracked, as I believed that I didn't have the money to pursue publishing anything, let alone the time to sit and write without a job on the side. I quickly began working an office job, which taught me a lot about myself and what I truly aspired to do in a career. You can read all about that story on my blog in my very first post. I ended up quitting my office job and decided that I wasn't going to waste any time building my own business just because I was worried about time and money. I love the world of storytelling in all of its mediums, and I especially love and appreciate the artists who are the creative muses of these stories. Therefore, I decided to craft a brand that would not only build my portfolio of works as a writer, but would also work to elevate other writers and their pieces. From the cozy sanctuary of my home on a cool summer evening, where the sun set behind the hills filled with pine trees, I created The Autumn Article. It is a business that is founded in the belief that no matter where you are in your journey as an artist, it's never too late to turn a new leaf and make something wonderful for yourself, build something for your own business/brand/organization, or to just take a leap of faith and try something new. Just as the maples and the aspens lose their foliage every fall and blossom into something beautiful in the spring, we too must appreciate every season of our lives and welcome growth and change. I hope you find that same beauty as a creative, just as I have.
