About Me


Lisa Dunn is a journalist living in Durham, North Carolina. She covers politics, reproductive rights, travel, beer, stand-up comedy, literature, and more. She has written features, investigative news, book reviews, author interviews, travel tips, and essays for GQ, Broadly, Cafe.com, Elite Daily, UPROXX, Portland MonthlyWillamette Week, Travel Portland, and Matador Network, among others.

She is also currently researching and writing about abortion in America for her MFA in Creative Nonfiction. Her aim is to take the abstract conversations about the procedure and translate those to the lived experiences of women who have terminated pregnancies.

Born and raised in South Jersey, she spent a decade out in Portland, Oregon before making her way back east—for now, anyways.
