Hi, I’m Alyssa–an editor and writer based in Brooklyn. My writing on policy, health, science, and culture has been featured in VICE, Narratively, CommonWealth Magazine, Dig Boston, Business Insider, AOL Jobs, Bustle, Transitions Abroad, and elsewhere.
Currently I’m the editor of Macmillan Publishers’ Quick and Dirty Tips podcasts/website/books, which provide short advice and lifehacks on topics like grammar, nutrition, psychology, and science. I love thinking about how editorial vision can strengthen engagement and develop audience.
I also have an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the University of New Hampshire and a BA in Peace and Conflict Studies from Colgate University. I’m most interest in true stories that highlight social justice issues. Get in touch to discuss my freelance rates–or even just to say hello and chat about the Serial podcast or illegal street vendors!
