Hi, my name is Britni (she/her). I'm a social worker-turned-freelance writer whose work sits at the intersection of sports, gender, and culture. I live in Boston, Massachusetts. I can usually be found watching the Red Sox or crying about the Marlins. My writing is a mix between reported journalism, creative nonfiction, and personal narrative essays, and I teach writing classes at GrubStreet.
I'm the sports columnist for Longreads and the former 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 Ringer, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, espnW, ELLE, Marie Claire, 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. That story was also selected as a notable story of 2017 in the 2018 edition of Best American Sports Writing. My work on the history of queer women in baseball for Narratively was nominated for a 2018 SABR Award for Historical Analysis/Commentary.
I'm repped by JL Stermer at New Leaf Literary, and am working on a book with Lyndsey D’Arcangelo about the National Women’s Football League for Bold Type Books.
