Lynn Freehill-Maye writes stories grounded in place. She uncovers everything from the people and policies to the businesses and cuisine that make each place distinct and workable in the 21st century.
Her work often touches on travel and sustainability. It has been published, in print or online, by The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Atlantic’s CityLab, Travel + Leisure, Afar, Texas Monthly, Modern Farmer, and beyond.
In 2016 she co-chaired the national conference of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the country’s leading organization of independent nonfiction writers. She grew up in the Midwest and has lived in the Southwest, Europe, Africa, and South and Central America. She now calls upstate New York home.
