From working with National Geographic on the US-Mexico border to covering the migrant caravan for Time Magazine to having a few dollars in my bank account because nobody has paid me, learn about the joys and existential despair of the writing life. In the next few months, I’ll be working on projects throughout Central America and at the US-Mexico border. If you’re curious about the life of a writer on the road, how to be your own boss, what it is like to work with gutsy photographers and how to deal with constant rejection, sign up. Or if you just want to support my writing on human rights and gender equality, that is great too. For $5/month you’ll receive big-hearted newsletters about the creative life. Sign up here.
