This Week’s Stories: Coffee, Gender and Mushroom Fabric

with one comment

As a freelance writer, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all of your various work and projects. And sometimes, you write a piece and practically forget about it until it finally comes out, given all the time that goes into the editing process in between.

I often think about what drives me to continue to write, particularly given many of the difficulties of the industry. Whenever a story comes out that I worked hard on, it makes me happy to share it. Why? Not because I need people to tell me “nice work!” but because the articles that I choose to write are stories that I care about, stories that I want people to know about and stories that I hope lead to further discussions.

This week I had a few of those. Here they are along with some of my other writing published this week:

Gender & Coffee: Challenging the Status Quo

The gender disparity in coffee is similar to the gender disparity in many other professions. It’s a complex and difficult topic to write about, and fortunately I had a lot of help from some good people along the way.

From Fungus to Fiber: Developing and Using Mushroom Textiles

Fabric from mushrooms? Yes, all thanks to mycelium! Stories like this one with a nature/food/fashion crossover are some of my favorite to research.

5 Breakfast Lessons I Learned from Scandinavia

There are a lot of things that we can learn from the Scandinavians when it comes to breakfast. The most important? Make time to actually eat and enjoy breakfast.

How to Make Granola Bars with Peanut Butter

This is my latest recipe on Adventure Journal, where I develop outdoor-friendly recipes. This one also happens to be incredibly bike friendly, perfect to stash in your jersey pocket.
