hi there. marissa here.

I’m a writer/editor/maker-of-things who is interested in questions of gender, culture, and power.

At NPR Music, I write about music I love, edit and organize our series on new canons, and run the Tiny Desk Contest. (You can read all that work + more here.)

I studied anthropology at Vassar College (BA) and intercultural + international communication at American University (MA).

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 email me at mlorusso [at] npr [dot] org.

Thanks for stopping by.
