My name is Ashley Belanger, and I’m a writer and editor from Florida, now based in Chicago.
View my resume here.
I earned a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Florida and have written for Teen Vogue, The Gainesville Sun, Orlando Weekly, Metro Times, Burrow Press’ Fantastic Floridas and other worthy online and print publications. I also contributed to this incredibly rich, first-ever biography of Curtis Mayfield, and in fall 2019, I am excited to be joining the Graduate Program in Science Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
In my free time, I experiment with writing structure in independent zines, seek out new hiking spots to photograph, mimic textures I see through hand-stitched embroidery, and grow gray hairs watching NBA basketball.
