Featured journalist: Hope Reese

Today we thought we'd change things up by featuring a freelancer: Hope Reese, a writer and editor who has contributed to The Atlantic, The Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, The Courier-Journalthe Harvard Review, and The Rumpus, among others. She's also worked at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard and earned a Master of Liberal Arts in Journalism at the Harvard Extension School.

Reese got her start, though, with a think-piece for The Atlantic on a book called "Twentysomething: Why Do Young Adults Seem Stuck?" In addition to her freelance work, she also hosts a radio show for IDEAFestival. Her advice to aspiring journalists: "Always write about something you're interested in. Not necessarily what you know, but something that inspires you to explore further." Asa  freelancer, Reese says that she pitches people just as often as PR people are pitching her -- and "[u]sually Sunday evening works best, I've found."

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
