Reporter, Social Media Editor

Isis Madrid is the former social media editor for The World's Across Women's Lives project, an editorial initiative focused on telling the many and varied stories of women around the world, and hope to foster a tight knit community of storytellers and activists to spark discussion around women's issues, both online and IRL. Join the conversation at the AWL Facebook group.

Before coming to The World, I wrote features and grabby headlines for GOOD Magazine. There, I mainly focused on feminism, trans rights, Internet oddities and trends and pop culture. Additionally, I have a background in digital editing and writing at alt weeklies (San Antonio Current, Boston's Weekly Dig, Detroit Metro Times), TV News production and writing (KSAT-12/ABC), Arts & Entertainment reporting and criticism (Flavorwire, Village Voice, OC Weekly, Metro, NoTofu, PLANET), anti-establishment startups (The Media, Boston Hassle), and fueling the blogosphere.

In addition to my news career I am an experienced production assistant with credits on big budget films, grassroots documentaries, primetime television and more.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Magazine Journalism from Boston University as well as a graduate certificate from The New School University in documentary film. I have two pugs named Pizza and Norm, respectively. Once upon a time I lived in Maui and worked as a sustainable farmer. I am always on the Internet.
