Jennifer Ann Peters

I am a Washington, D.C.–based writer, editor, and all-around wordsmith (and occasional webmistress). Currently, I work as the content manager for the News Media Alliance. Previously, I worked as a freelance editor for VICE News, senior editor at RT Book Reviews, contributing editor to Penthouse, associate editor of The Girls of Penthouse and Penthouse Forum, and, before that, as a freelance editor at Penthouse Variations. And before that, I studied journalism at St. John’s University and worked some very odd jobs.

I have written about everything from making love to making war. Current writing projects focus on the news media industry, the free press, and the future of journalism. I’ve also written about: addiction, art, books, government, hot sauce, and a multitude of other topics.

When I’m not writing, I read in excess, swim until I’m waterlogged, and take every opportunity to try new things.
