Hi, I’m Maggie Dickman. I’m a music, entertainment and lifestyle writer, freelance PR consultant and social media strategist based in Cleveland, OH, by way of Northwest Iowa. (Yes, my hometown is the Ice Cream Capital of the World.)
I’m currently an Editorial Assistant at Alt Press, focusing on music, entertainment and youth culture. I was previously a fashion, beauty, entertainment and tech writer for MORE.com, with work published on Track 7, CLRVYNT, Urban Plains and more.
You'll find writing samples under the assorted headings above.
Fact #1: My first tattoo was a stick n’ poke I got in a stranger’s kitchen, written for a personal experience story that was published.
Fact #2: I once got in a vehicle with a total stranger to conduct an interview for a Slipknot story that was not published. Will never be doing that again.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication and a Bachelor of Arts, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Drake University in Des Moines, IA with degrees in Magazine Journalism and English. (And let’s not forget that concentration in Film, Drama and New Media.) (Oh, and yes: It is Drake, like the rapper.)
My likes include: Traveling, black coffee, film noirs, William Shakespeare and The Maine
I like writing on everything from women’s health to Steve Harrington of Stranger Things, and if you want to talk girl power anthems, Panic! At The Disco or fast fashion alternatives, hit me up: firstname.lastname@example.org.
