hi there. marissa here.

I’m a writer/editor/journalist/maker-of-things who is interested questions of gender, culture, and power. I like to tell stories + help other people tell stories.

I currently work at NPR Music where I write about bands I love, edit our series on new canonsand manage the Tiny Desk Contest. My voice has also appeared on podcasts like Pop Culture Happy Hour, All Songs Considered, and World Cafe.

Previously, I freelanced for places like The Establishment, Bandcamp Daily, the Washington City Paper, She Shreds magazine, and Bitch magazine. (You can read all that work + more here.)

For fun, I run a weekly link roundup newsletter called Link Plz and make collaborative zines. I’m also a songwriter under the name Keeper.

Want to get in touch? You can catch me on Twitter, chatting about friends, my favorite rock bands, and cool things happening in the world. You can email me at mlorusso [at] npr [dot] org.

Thanks for stopping by.
