If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
MY WRITING & MEDIA-MAKING: I report on the culture you need to know--people, politics, places, art, books, media, movies, IDEAS. I've written for Rolling Stone, GQ, InStyle, Self, American Way, Premiere, Mirabella, and other print magazines. I'm a columnist at the Huffington Post, and I've written for Salon.com, Vogue.com, and others online. I started blogging in 2002, and my BETH ARNOLD: LETTER FROM PARIS blog was a great success in Paris. My online commentary has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, The Hotline, Der Spiegel, more, while my phototoon series OBAMARIFIX appeared in BuzzFlash. I'm a podcast- and filmmaker, an early adopter, and a major engager of Social Media. I am a design thinker with SOCIAL and GLOBAL DEXTERITY.
