Ann was a magazine editor for six years, which means she’s spent most of her career as a writing teacher. These days she’s a freelance writer herself, publishing a weekly column on New York magazine’s website and a biweekly advice column for the Columbia Journalism Review. She also makes pie charts for The Hairpin and Los Angeles magazine. Her words have appeared in many other publications, too. Her email newsletter has been called “the only mass email I actually open every week” by many subscribers. She speaks to other journalists about making media in the digital age and has contributed to a few books on the subject. She is terrified of doing yoga in groups and so this retreat is going to be suuuuper interesting.
