About Me

I’m James. I’m a writer living in Texas.

I currently write for Quorum Report, Texas’ largest political newsletter. I also write for two niche Texas weeklies. Dallas Voice, where I worked for two years, and Texas Jewish Post.

I previously was the book reviews section editor for New Clear Vision, a staff writer and calendar editor for the Dallas Voice, a LGBT print weekly publication in Dallas, Texas, and an assistant editor and reporter for the progressive news site Truthout.orgMy other work has appeared in Fort Worth WeeklyGeneration Progress (formerly Campus Progress), Georgia VoiceThe Huffington Post and Counterpunch.org.

Some accomplishments:

At the Voice I launched our community calendar, managed our coverage of the 84th Texas Legislature, coverage of the historic Obergefell decision legalizing marriage equality, among other projects. During the 84th, the criminal justice blog Grits for Breakfast called my coverage of needle exchange legislation during the 84th legislative session “possibly the best.” I also won an award and was a finalist for another, both for commentary.

At Truthout.org I was the week day editor in charge of a digital edition, which included coding, regularly posting original and reprinted content and maintaining work flow among the staff. I of course wrote occasionally too.

I would love to write for you. I am a general assignment writer. I am able to learn and write about almost any issues clearly and concisely. I’m interested in long form, explanatory reporting and profiles. I have a clear grasp of issues including Texas politics, LGBTQ issues, religion, art and architecture. I love personality profiles, too. Please reach me with any questions at james(dot)journo(at)gmail(dot)com.
