Hey there, I'm Laura Brzyski (brisk-ee).
I'm a Philadelphia-born/-raised/-based editor and writer, reporting on the city's burgeoning wellness scene, plus larger health and fitness trends that flourish locally.
Currently, I serve as the health and wellness editor of Philadelphia magazine, where I manage Be Well Philly. Recent features and longform stories include "My So-Called (Semi-Sober) Life," a deep-dive into the rise of mindful drinking/sober curiosity, and "Inner Strength" about pelvic health education and awareness.
I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from Rutgers University-Camden and my MA in English Literature from Lehigh University, and continue to lecture as an adjunct professor in composition at Rutgers University-Camden.
I live with my husband and our dog Bogey, and have at least one Stock's pound cake in my freezer at all times (iykyk).
