I'm Sally Tamarkin
I'm an editor, writer, & sensitivity reader based in Philadelphia.
I've been a journalist since 2014. Most recently I was features director at SELF. Before that, I was a writer and editor at BuzzFeed Health. And before that, I did community organizing and policy advocacy around LGBTQ rights and reproductive justice. I have a Masters of Social Work in Community Organizing from the University of Connecticut School of Social Work. I co-host the lifestyle podcast Oh, I Like That along with my friend Rachel Wilkerson Miller. I'm passionate about the intersection of wellness and social justice, tabletop roleplaying games, and working with thoughtful, generous collaborators. My pronouns are she/her.
Check out the services I offer here, and examples of my work here. If you need an editor and/or sensitivity reader for your lifestyle or health journalism, brand copy, TTRPG material, or anything else in my wheelhouse, I'd love to hear from you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
