Oh, hi! I’m Austen—a writer, editor, copywriter, content creator, and social media consultant based in New York City. That was a lot of titles, so if you want to just call me a freelancer, that’s cool with me.
I have worked as an editor at Nylon and Interview Magazines and after getting laid off (Twice! Thanks print media!) in May 2018, I have written for publications like Refinery29, The Zoe Report, Fashionista, Teen Vogue, Insider, L’Officiel USA, and more.
When I’m not working on a copywriting assignment or doing blog editing for fashion brands, you can find me sipping cold brew in a local coffee shop, reading a book by the NYC waterfront, or working on my fashion and beauty blog, Keep Calm and Chiffon. I first launched my blog in 2012 and it has since expanded into a multi-vertical website where I write weekly posts about everything from coats to career advice.
