Featured Journalist: Caitlin Leonard
We love all journalists here at Muck Rack, but freelancers hold a special place in our hearts: Hired guns, beholden to nobody except their own codes, ethics, and interests. Today, we're highlighting one of the most unique young freelance voices in digital media. Like Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and other Canadians fascinated by America, Leonard brings an effortless mastery of the kind of words for natural wonder and beauty that don't often apply here in New York. She also brings a sense of openness, no doubt bred by living in a country with so many wide open spaces, to pieces written about Brooklyn, offering a much-needed counterpoint to the city's cold and claustrophobic environs. This meditative force also comes through in what stories she chooses to cover.
