Books editor, Brooklyn Magazine

A monthly print magazine exploring New York’s most populous borough

As books editor, I managed Brooklyn Magazine’s editorial coverage of books and the publishing industry for both print and web. I wrote several pieces a month for both print and web, and solicited and edited freelance writers for three digital books and culture pieces per week. I also edited a print poetry series, publishing poets such as Hanif Abdurraqib, Tyehimba Jess, Danez Smith, Tommy Pico, José Olivarez, and Wendy Xu. My “Diversity in Publishing” series was featured in the Atlantic, Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, Bustle, The Toast, among others, and my profile of of Saeed Jones was named to Longreads’ “Best Culture Writing of 2016.”
