After 10 years on staff at various national and local publications (The Chicago Tribune, People.com, Washingtonian Magazine, Time Out Chicago), I left the office to go full-time in my home office. My range is diverse: I've covered everything from health to travel to politics to pop culture. Print? Digital? I've worked in both extensively. I was a features editor for most of my career and specialize in longform journalism, but I'm available for assignments of all lengths. If the subject is interesting, I'm interested. Please poke around this site for work samples and contact me at marissa.conrad.1@gmail.com if you like what you see.

I write a column for Forbes focusing on food, drink and travel.
