I tell stories. Words are my favorite tool. They are where the opportunity is at—to spread ideas, to grow a community, to fire people up. Words—okay, stories—make people care. 

Stories are fickle things. To get one to stick, it needs to feel human—like there's a real person behind it. When people connect with other people in a real, raw way, you get feelings. And feelings turn into action. And action turns into impact. 

Enough of me nerding out about words—they aren't the only tool in my toolbox. I dabble in video, audio, and photography, too. Because the best stories aren't just read, but experienced. 


EXPERIENCE

 
Madison_Kahn_writer_editor_strategist.jpg

I've worked in print and digital media, as a writer, editor, and content strategist. My words have appeared in award-winning magazines and major consumer brands. Whether I'm working with a brand, on a marketing team, or in a publishing house, my approach to storytelling remains the same—rooted in audience, authenticity, and curiosity.

I'm currently the Content Lead at Light. Most recently, I was a Senior Editor at Medium and its ASME award-winning digital magazine, Matter. I've done stints at Outside, GOOD, and Boston magazines as well. My latest side project is Anxy, a new magazine about our inner worlds.
