Hi, I'm Michelle Goodman and I've been at this writing-for-dollars game for more than two decades. My essays and journalism have appeared in the Washington Post, New York Times, Seattle Times, Salon, Vice, Narratively, Magenta, Mental Floss, ABCNews.com, BBC.com, CNN.com, MSN, Seattle magazine, BUST, Bitch, The Bark, Boing Boing, and as well as on KNKX public radio.

I've contributed to several anthologies, most recently Alone Together: Love, Grief, and Comfort in the Time of Covid-19, which benefits independent bookstores. I'm also an award-winning author of two irreverent career guides—The Anti 9-to-5 Guide and My So-Called Freelance Life—and have been awarded writing fellowships from Jack Straw, Hedgebrook, Playa, Whiteley Center, and Artsmith.

I've kept a roof overhead most of my adult life by wrangling and managing copy for media companies, small businesses, startups, Fortune 500s, and universities. I'm currently a copywriter for a large tech company in the Puget Sound region.

I currently live near the beach with a snuggly dog and a benevolent ghost.
