Hello, I’m Lourdes. I’m a writer living and working in New York City. I freelance for a variety of online publications writing original essays and news pieces on beauty, fashion, television, women’s issues, politics, and books, to name a few. I’m also on the editorial team at Novella, a writing salon and storytelling club for women. I am equally passionate about eating cheese as I am about any of these topics, if not more.
Born and bred in the suburbs of Los Angeles, I made my way to New York in 2013. I now almost enjoy being either so cold that my contacts freeze to my eyeballs or so hot that I’m drowning in my own perspiration at all times.
When not crouched over my computer like a goblin, you can find me wandering around the Upper West Side with my dog-daughter, Maeby.
