I write long-form journalism and essays about topics like environmental justice, women's issues and gender, the future of work, literature, and Southern identity for publications including the Atlantic, Guernica, Jezebel, Los Angeles Review of Books, VICE, In These Times, Forbes, Literary Hub, and others. You can find samples of my work below. I'm also an editor, and you can learn more about that aspect of my work by visiting the "about" page. Thanks for stopping by!
