Vanessa is a queer feminist Jewitch writer, editor, and photographer currently based in New York. She’s the community editor at Autostraddle and an MFA creative non-fiction candidate at Sarah Lawrence College. She writes about queer friendship, home, nature, and the body. Her words have been published at Autostraddle, Nylon, Shape, and elsewhere. She publishes a biweekly newsletter called I Miss You, which you can subscribe to here. You can also find her on Twitter and Instagram.

When she’s not writing or online, she likes to hike, bake, read, and garden. She’s a Capricorn sun, Gemini moon, Virgo rising, but her Mars is in Aries so don’t worry, she’s fun.

She really misses Portland. Yes, even the rain.
