About Me


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

When she’s not hanging out at home with her grumpy old chow-mix, Reuben, she’s on the road, probably running to catch a train or a flight. Born and raised in South Jersey, she spent a decade out in Portland, Oregon before making her way back east—for now, anyways.
