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, as well as the co-host, co-writer, and editor of the ‘77 Music Club podcast (it’s on hiatus, sorry). She writes a (sporadic) newsletter called bed crumbs. Oh, and she is currently writing a biography of Elaine May for St. Martin’s Press. She has not known rest since she was 12, though even that is debatable.
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 to be thinking about that time Madeline Kahn played the Metropolitan Opera Quiz on PBS (bring back weird niche public access tv shows, please!), 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 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.
