ABOUT

Hi! I’m Agatha French. I’m a freelance writer based in LA who covers art, culture, and books. 

You can find my work in the Los Angeles Times, where I was a staff writer in features, and the Los Angeles Review of Books, where I served as food editor. I also create copy for companies looking for a punchy, narrative edge.

My writing has appeared in Gigantic Magazine, The Nervous Breakdown, Everyday Genius, Cinema Thread, Venus Zine, Burrow Press, Edible LA, Parcel, and Nano Fiction. I was deputy editor of Coda, the literary magazine of the City University of New York, and a fiction editor for Bridge Eight Magazine. My chapbook, Goodnight Nobody, is out now.

I've led panels at the LA Times Festival of Books and the Douglas Anderson Writers' Festival, where I interviewed literary-America's sweetheart George Saunders and U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith. I will never get over it.

In addition to my writing, I teach dance aerobics (yup) and post the occasional outfit to Instagram
