Hey there Essay Fiesta fans! It’s the week before our next big show, which means it’s time for reader profiles! Today, we are spotlighting a man who is no stranger to the writing business. It’s journalist and editor Scott Smith!
Scott has a lengthy Chicago-based journalism resume. This new media man has worked for some of the most well-known publications in the area. He started as an editor for the blog Chicagoist back in 2004 before moving on to TimeOut Chicago where he served as the weekly’s Web editor. Scott then hopped on over to Playboy.com (yes, it has articles) where he worked as a senior editor and then as the director of content. Finally, he landed a new home this year at Chicago Magazine as the publication’s director of digital strategy and development.
So come out to the Book Cellar on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. and see Scott along with the rest of our talented readers.
