Some staff news:

Her freelance work has been published by The Wall Street Journal, Harper’s Bazaar, Vice, and other outlets. J. Crew recently took out a two-page magazine ad featuring a note addressed to “Ms. Avins” after she suggested they revive a classic swimsuit, and they did. Jenni speaks Portuguese.

With these hires, we’re beginning the process of staffing up for a new phase of growth. In addition to a handful of one-year fellowships we’re finalizing offers for, we’ll be adding incremental new editorial positions in the coming weeks.
