About

Alyssa GiacobbeI've been writing and editing for magazines since 1998, when I landed my first job gratefully fetching lattes and editing the Table of Contents as an assistant editor at Elle. I’ve since held staff editing positions at Harper’s Bazaar, InTouch Weekly, Teen Vogue, and Boston, and am currently editor-at-large for DuJour. My work has also appeared in publications that include InStyle, New York, Details, Self, Lucky, Elle Decor, Women's Health, and the Boston Globe Magazine. I have been honored three times by the Rhode Island Press Association for work that appeared in Rhode Island Monthly, including “A Family Tragedy,” which placed first in the Feature Writing category, and "Taylor Swift: The New Girl," and was awarded a Gold in the National Health Information Awards for “The Best Birth Control You’re Not Using,” which ran in LHJ. I coauthored Face to Face (Fair Winds, 2012) with celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes as well as That's What Fashion Is (St. Martin's Press, 2015) with Joe Zee. I consider myself a true generalist, and enjoy investigative writing and in-depth health pieces as well as fun travelogues and pop-culture commentary. I live north of Boston with my husband, stepson, and two cats, Joanie and The Flash.
