“Badassery was the game and Sam was her name.”

My name is Samantha L. Manzella.

I’m a freelance writer, journalist, and social media strategist with a wide range of print and digital editorial experience. I live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley with my partner, Jasper, and our two cats.

I work as an Editorial Assistant at NewNowNext, Logo TV’s LGBT magazine. I also work as a freelance writer and journalist, with bylines at magazines like VISITvortex Hudson Valley, WeddingVortex, and Hudson Valley Magazine. I enjoy writing about LGBT issues, arts and entertainment, ethical living, and local tourism.

Formerly, I served as the Arts Editor of my college’s award-winning weekly paper, The New Paltz Oracle. I interned with the American Society of Magazine Editors during summer 2017.
