Writer + Editor

About

ABOUT ME:

I spent the first 10 years of my journalism career as a staff writer and editor for publications including The Chicago Tribune, Washingtonian Magazine and Time Out Chicago, back when it was Chicago's preeminent weekly magazine (RIP). In 2017, I left the Tribune to go full-time freelance. My range is diverse: I've covered everything from science to travel to politics to pop culture. Print or digital? I've worked extensively in both and will happily tackle either, but no clickbait, please; one of my missions is to increase the quality of journalism online. I specialize in longform pieces, but I'm available for assignments of all lengths. If the subject is interesting, I'm interested. Contact me at marissaconrad1@gmail.com.
