Hi, my name is Britni (she/her). I'm a social worker-turned-freelance writer who is passionate about shattering stigma through the power of story. I live in Boston, Massachusetts with my family. I can usually be found watching the Red Sox or crying about the Marlins. My writing is a mix between personal narrative essays, creative nonfiction, and reported journalism, and I teach writing classes at GrubStreet and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.
I'm the sports and culture columnist for Bitch Media. My work has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, The Washington Post, Teen Vogue, Bleacher Report, The Guardian, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, VICE Sports, espnW, Marie Claire, Buzzfeed, and many others.
In 2017, I received the Nellie Bly Award for Investigative Journalism from the Transformative Culture Project for my reporting on racism in the Boston baseball and sports media scene for DigBoston. I'm repped by JL Stermer at New Leaf Literary and am working on a non-fiction book about women and girls in American football, co-authored by Lyndsey D'Arcangelo.
