Claire Lobenfeld is a writer and editor from New York living in Los Angeles.

For the last decade I’ve covered music and culture for major and independent publications alike, and have held staff positions at FACT Magazine, Wondering Sound (RIP), Complex Magazine, and Stereogum. My newsletter, Read You, Wrote You, about what I’m reading and what I’m writing, comes out on Wednesdays. Please subscribe! ☼

I’d love to write for you about literature, electronic and pop music and technology, feminism and the culture of politics, and reality TV, especially RuPaul's Drag Race. I read fiction and creative nonfiction at CRAFT and my own fiction has been published by Catapult.

Get in touch for assignments and other work or to say hi!

I can: write, edit, consult on stories, projects, and publication launches, and give feedback on short pieces and manuscripts.

I can't: premiere your music. ☼
