Hi, I’m Alyssa–an editor and writer originally from Boston and now based in Brooklyn. 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 also the editor of Macmillan’s Quick and Dirty Tips podcasts/website/books, which provide creative, practical advice from expert hosts on everything from grammar and nutrition to technology 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!
