About Me, Maggie


I'm a magazine writer living in Philadelphia. I write about books, music, bodies in motion, salty food, style & culture and other things I love. 

I also run Purse Book, a weekly newsletter about reading hot little books & being a gal on the go. 

My magazine work


My essays, reviews, and features have appeared in The Cut, ViceGuernica, GQ,  i-D Magazine, the L.A. Times, Paper, the Paris Review, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Allure, the Awl, Elle, and Bon Appetit.

Before freelancing, I worked as an associate editor at The Cut and as a staff writer at GQ

& other work


I edit both fiction and non-fiction. 

I also copy-write! I’ve ghost written for at least two musicians you probably love. If you’re an avant-rock musician—or someone else with an interesting project—you can reach out

& the rest.


I help with communications (and sundry other stuff) for Mutual Aid Philly. If you’re interested in working with us, let me know
