I have written for  The London Review of Books, The Nation, Elle, The BelieverThe Boston Globe, the New Yorker online, and The New York Review of Books, where I am an editor. My work has been collected in The Best of the Believer Music Interviews and The Feminist Utopia Project.

Until May 2012, I was an undergraduate at Harvard, where I studied ancient and Renaissance history. As a student, I wrote a column about women at the university for The Crimson, was an editor at The Advocate and worked for the head of the Harvard library. From 2010 to 2011, I was a Ledecky Fellow at Harvard Magazine. After graduation, I spent a year studying ancient papyrus and early Christianity at Oxford as a Henry Fellow.
