Amanda Sorell, Assistant Editor
Amanda joined the team as an assistant editor in June 2012.
She grew up in a combination of Midwest states — South Dakota, Kansas and Nebraska — and graduated from the University of Kansas in 2011 with degrees in journalism and creative writing. After graduation, she worked as a designer and editor for a small newspaper in southeast Kansas, and almost one year later scored the position at MOTHER EARTH NEWS and moved back up to Lawrence, Kan.
She heads up the Green Homes beat and the Nature & Community beat, and is excited to learn more about these topics in addition to sharing what she already knows. She is interested in making DIY natural home products, trying to live a zero-waste lifestyle, and raising awareness about environmental and social justice issues. She also loves reading, writing, grammar, running, music of all kinds, traveling, and learning.
