Rachel Sona Reed - Editor

Los Angeles, CA, United States

Creative professional who collaborates with socially conscious organizations and individuals to change the world with words.

Overview

I'm a writer and editor who enjoys working with non-profits and small businesses to bring their stories to new audiences. In my spare time, I write fiction, book reviews, and essays on everything from the trail-blazing feminism of Roz Doyle to the cultural reasons you can't eat your dog. Once upon a time, I was an anthropologist.
