I’m Alex Press, an editor at Jacobin Magazine and a freelance writer newly in New York. I was in Boston for seven years prior, where I was a political organizer and, for a few years, a PhD student.
I use this blog to occasionally write about politics from a left-wing perspective. It’s also occasionally a venue for personal essays that I wouldn’t want to put in actual publications. Those, of course, tend to be more popular.
Some of my published writing:
Code Red, n+1
On the Job, Bookforum
The Rebellion in Kentucky, The Outline
With a Nod to ’68, Columbia Grad Students Strike, Jewish Currents
Various Things, Jacobin
About Those Outside Agitators, Dig Boston
Fight for $15 Organizers Demand a Union, Truthout
Silence on Campus, The Nation
