Hanna Brooks Olsen - About

My name is Hanna, and I’m a writer (among other things).

I live in Seattle with my small dog. I’m a co-founding editor of Seattlish. I’m also available to write freelance words or help you figure out your content strategy, if you’re interested.

I’ve written for outlets like the Atlanticthe Huffington Post,the Seattle MetMcSweeney’sthe StrangerXOJane, and Bitch Magazine, to name a few. Dan Savage beat me out for Best Local Newspaper Columnist/Reporter. One of my essays is published in an anthology called The Better Bombshell. I’ve been interviewed by NPRWorld News with Diane Sawyer, and The Portland Mercury.

I’ve built successful websites from the ground, and used to work in public radio. Oh, and in college, I was a janitor and a cocktail waitress.

When I’m not stringing together words or making sounds, I enjoy music on vinyl, bourbon, college football, making impulse purchases at second-hand stores, ballet, and sitting in dark bars with friends.
