Writer Emily Grosvenor believes the best media is a call to action. A skilled journalist with traditional reporting chops as well as an outsized share of social media jiu jitsu, she serves media editors and their readers with tight, engaging stories about places that beckon, faces that matter and traces of humanity in the unexpected. A culture vulture of the best kind and a hunter/gatherer of the next big thing in travel, food and society, she seeks out stories that transcend the news cycle and leave readers with the desire to get out and love their lives. Always ready to use herself to bring the LOLZ, her essays and columns have graced back pages across the nation.
Clients: Publishers Weekly, Salon.com, in Sunset, Portland Monthly, Edible Portland, AAA's Via, The Statesman-Journal, Salem Weekly, Oregon Quarterly, Oregon Humanities Magazine, and Northwest Palate. Emily is the books editor for Eugene Magazine.
Teaching: Emily teaches introduction to magazine journalism, most recently at the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon and at the University of Iowa, where she received an M.A. in Journalism in 2008. You might also know her through the Oregon Chapter of the Fulbright Association.
Emily lives in Oregon wine country with her husband and two sons, where she is writing a memoir, Pioneer Perfume.
