Carrie Courogen (hi) has been a New York-based writer and editor for more than a decade. She currently works at Condé Nast, where she serves as the associate director of creative development, digital video, for Pitchfork, Vanity Fair, and Teen Vogue. She is an associate editor at Bright Wall/Dark Room and writes a (sporadic) newsletter called bed crumbs. Oh, and she is currently writing a biography of Elaine May for St. Martin’s Press.
Robert Plant once told her “there are a lot of weirdo journalists out there and you’re not one of them,” and he may have just said that to be nice, but let’s all assume he genuinely meant it. Her writing—which often focuses on the intersection of feminism and pop culture, even though she more often feels like this screengrab of Diane Keaton in Reds—has been featured in print and online all over the place, from PAPER Magazine to Pitchfork, NPR, Vanity Fair, Vice, and many more. The full outlet list, at this point, is too chaotic to type in a braggy but nonetheless brief graf like this, so you can view a full archive of her writing samples here.
When she is not writing and asking you to read what she has written, she’s likely thinking about that time Madeline Kahn played the Metropolitan Opera Quiz on PBS, lowering the median age at a concert/screening/talk that is absolutely meant for a much older demographic, or walking around Manhattan listening to Paul Simon’s 1991 Concert in Central Park. Whatever. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram if you so desire.
She’s rep’d by Nicki Richesin at Dunow, Carlson & Lerner, if you have any actual work-related questions.
