Jackie Guigui-Stolberg

I'm an American-born-and-educated freelance writer and photographer based in southern Germany, thirty km southeast of Munich. I'm also not far from Innsbruck and Salzburg, Austria. Before moving to Germany in 1985, I worked as a reporter at The Ridgefield Press, a weekly newspaper in Ridgefield, Connecticut/USA, and in the international editions departments of the magazines Cosmopolitan and Science Digest at The Hearst Corporation in New York. Once in Germany, I gained experience in the photo editing department at the German editions of Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar, and was the photo editor of the German magazine Musik Express for several years before starting out as a freelance journalist in 1988. For some time I also worked freelance as a book editor and translator. I relish the challenge of working my way into new subject areas. I have written about food, homeless people, organic farming, the military, nudism, education, motorcycles, antiques, mechanical engineers, fashion, politics, cats and dogs…. I provide my own photographs or can find high-resolution images for you from other sources. Besides writing complete articles, I'm also happy to help you with background research,  fact-checking, or to collaborate on projects that combine the efforts of several contributors. I have mainly worked for magazines, but I am also available for book contributions or online, radio, or TV assignments. I have extensive interviewing experience and enjoy tailoring interviews for publication. I have excellent digital recording equipment that is suitable for high-quality audio transmissions. I write in my native American English. I also speak fluent German and French and can also telephone, do general research, and conduct interviews in Italian and Spanish. I am willing to travel for assignments outside of my usual working area in southern Germany.

    Imagine the springy warmth of a yeast dough, steaming-fresh from the oven, or the crunchy crust of a whole-wheat sour-dough bread bristling with toasted sunflower seeds, or the delicate, buttery flakes of a fine puff-pastry twist.

    München, Germany Cultural September 30 @ 12:00am

    The name of Munich's most successful walking-tours company, "Stattreisen" is a play on German words that mean something most closely translatable as "alternative trips". The message is clear: on a "Stattreisen" walking tour you will experience the Bavarian capital in unusual ways, with... Read more

  • "Blindgänger" (Unexploded Bombs in Germany) - Blasts from the Past

    München, Germany Cultural September 30 @ 12:00am

    For countless reasons, World War II is present in the German psyche and memory for many people in the general population on almost a daily basis.
