Before moving to Boston I spent a decade in New York as a freelance editor for book publishers and magazines including Clarion Books, Entertainment Weekly, Hachette, Henry Holt, Interview, Life, Men's Journal, Metropolitan Home, the New York Times Magazine, Random House, and Vibe.

For SEO purposes, I'm told I must put ElizabethGehrman in this section, no space allowed. Because the internet is nothing if not elegant.

Elizabeth G

I'm a versatile freelance writer and editor specializing in medicine, science, and the environment, travel, shelter, profiles, and service pieces. For a decade I freelanced full-time for the Boston Globe Magazine, and I've written for many other magazines, including Archaeology, Good Housekeeping, and This Old House.

I have published two books — a history of the Mass. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Children
and Rare Birds, a biography of the ornithologist David Wingate — and since 2001 have also edited and written magazine articles, annual reports, press releases, and online content for Boston College, Boston University, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard (schools of business, education, law, medicine, and public health, the Kennedy School, and the Harvard Gazette), Mass. General Hospital, Tufts University, and more.
