I'm thrilled to join the Bitch Media team as the new online editor. Expect big things! In the coming year, we're going to be overhauling the website and bringing more articles, reviews, and cultural criticism to bitchmedia.org than ever before.
The learning curve for this job will be steep, but I'm excited about carefully climbing a small mountain of challenges over the coming weeks. My background is as a news reporter: I've worked professionally as a journalist for the past six years, most recently as a reporter and sexual politics columnist for alternative weekly the Portland Mercury. I also edit a series of nonfiction history comics and am knee-deep in work on a book about nontraditional relationships called Sex from Scratch. If you're curious, here is a drawing of my face.
It's my goal to help Bitch Media become an even better platform for diverse, insightful, funny perspectives on pop culture. We'll also be focusing more on advocacy, connecting Bitch readers to real-world action. A big part of my job will be finding writers for Bitch Media's site and editing their work. We are always looking for smart new contributors. If you have great ideas to pitch or opinions on what topics we should cover, get in touch!
