The work of today's featured journalist is sure to whet your appetite: meet Hope S. Philbrick, a writer and editor with a specialty in travel, food, wine and spirits. Delicious! Based in Atlanta, Philbrick's beat leads her to cover everything from food producers to restaurant openings to agriculture and farmers. As for her favorite social network, Philbrick's answer might surprise you (or it might not!): it's "dinner parties."
Philbrick first got the writing bug in high school, when as a freshman she first joined the literary magazine. As for why she became a journalist, she writes, "I don't feel that I had a choice, writing is in my DNA."
