Marissa Lorusso

I’m Marissa Lorusso. I’m a writer and editor currently based in Massachusetts.

👩‍💻 Right now I work as an associate editor on NPR’s Music and Events teams. That means I write and edit for NPR Music; co-produce the weekly NPR Music newsletter; work on projects like Turning the Tables and the Tiny Desk Contest; and sometimes appear on podcasts like All Songs Considered and Pop Culture Happy Hour.

🎓 I studied anthropology (B.A.) at Vassar College and intercultural and international communication (M.A.) at American University’s School of International Service.

💜 I’m also a songwriter under the name Keeper and I make a newsletter called constellations.
