I'm Lauren Oster, a freelance writer/editor. I spent the first years of my career at Redbook, where I worked on entertainment, entertaining, style, health, and travel; I now cover those beats (and write personal essays and pop culture pieces) around the web and in print. You can find a selection of my clips here.

I was born in Los Angeles, grew up in southern California, earned an English degree from Stanford, and moved to New York City, a town I will leave horizontally if ever. I volunteer at The Wild Bird Fund and Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, and I was a crew member at the Tribeca Film Festival for seven years. I live on the Lower East Side with my husband and two cats.
