Second Stanza Media Founder Frank S. Costanza

Frank S. Costanza is a Brooklyn born writer who has devoted the past two decades of his life to community journalism, including 15 years as editor of an award-winning weekly newspaper covering the world-famous Hamptons on Long Island’s East End.

As much as his life has changed over that span—Frank fell in love, married his soulmate and fell in love twice more thanks to his two wonderful daughters—his passion has remained steadfast, surpassed only by his excitement to start down a new career path as a freelance writer and editor.

A recent relocation from Long Island to North Carolina—the inspiration for his new blog, “My New Life In ‘The Burg’”—has inspired this course change, one that he has debated for some time but was only now afforded the opportunity to pursue. Unshackled of his daily deadlines—even “weekly ” newspapers must follow a demanding daily schedule to remain relevant—Frank is eager to refocus his energy, love and passion for writing into a new business venture: Second Stanza Media.
