Exciting News!

I'm moving over to Medium to BLOG :~)

Hi all,

I missed you! How have you been? I know it’s been a bit since my last email. But I have something super exciting for you. I’m now officially blogging for Medium, which means all the takes you would normally see here are moving over there. Starting next week, I’ll be posting once or twice a week, so go on and follow me on the platform so you can continue getting your essay fix. It won’t be The Edit, but the content will likely be of a similar vein :~)

I’m really excited about this opportunity since I will be given entire editorial freedom to post what I want and get paid for my work, which is HUGE if you’re a freelance writer. Typically, we don’t really get much of a say, especially when it comes to blogging jobs. But this gig with Medium is all about building relationships and being ourselves. I hope to see y’all there!

Here’s what you missed on me the past month:

  • I started grad school at Columbia. It’s been a total whirlwind, but I’m having tons of fun and am actually learning. Crazy when that happens.

  • I’ve published a new World on Fire column on Indigenous Ecological Knowledge. I also wrote up a handy guide of orgs to donate to if you’re concerned about the climate crisis for VICE.

  • I am FINALLY getting good at throwing clay on the wheel. It’s been a laborious journey for sure though.

Thank you so much for reading every newsletter push! It’s been super fun and I hope y’all will enjoy my work with Medium. Let me know what you guys want from me in this space by emailing here: izziermrz@gmail.com.

Much love,
