journalist, editor, author
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. I continue to edit, including presubmission journal reports, white papers, annual reports, and articles, both for universities and international corporations and consulting firms that require NDAs. Topics are diverse but lean toward things like aerospace, biopharma and biotech, business, climate change, cloud computing, digital and analytics, education, energy, engineering, medicine, and policy.
For SEO purposes, I'm told I must put ElizabethGehrman in this section, no space allowed. Because the internet is nothing if not elegant.
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've written 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 written magazine articles, 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; the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; and the Harvard Gazette), Mass. General Hospital, Tufts University, and more.
