WSJ hires Parish as editor of Future of Everything
Mike Miller, senior editor for features and WSJ weekend, sent out the following announcement on Monday:
We’re pleased to announce that Stan Parish is joining the WSJ staff as editor of our growing Future of Everything franchise. Working as a freelancer, Stan has served as editor-in-chief of the five successful FOE magazines we’ve published since 2014 (four print/digital issues and one digital only), with more on the way this spring and fall. His high journalistic standards, creativity, and mastery of magazine presentation have been instrumental in building FOE into a powerful new Wall Street Journal brand, now also encompassing a successful podcast and a live festival scheduled for May in New York.
An honors graduate of Wesleyan University, Stan had a brief stint in finance before beginning his magazine career as an intern at Vanity Fair. He went on to positions at GQ, Departures and Bloomberg Pursuits. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, Esquire and elsewhere. He is the author of the novels “Down the Shore” (Viking, 2014) and the forthcoming “And Nothing Will Save You.” In his spare time he trains and competes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and surfs.
