Hi, I’m Alyssa–an editor and writer living in Brooklyn. I landed here by way of what I call the “East Coast Tour”–I’ve also recently lived, worked, gone to school, or taught in Upstate New York, Northern Virginia, New Hampshire, and Boston. My writing on policy, health, science, and culture has been featured in VICE, Narratively, CommonWealth Magazine, Boston’s Weekly Dig, Business Insider, AOL Jobs, Bustle, Transitions Abroad, and elsewhere.
I’m currently the editor of Macmillan Publishers’ Quick and Dirty Tips podcasts/website/books, which provide practical, engaging advice from expert hosts on everything from grammar and nutrition to psychology and science. I have an MFA in Nonfiction Writing from the University of New Hampshire and a BA in Peace and Conflict Studies from Colgate University. Get in touch to discuss my freelance rates–or even just to say hello and chat about the Serial podcast and illegal street vendors!
