Jessie Li | writer + editor
I am a writer at work on my first book of fiction.
I have worked in journalism for a decade, most recently as an editor at The New Yorker, where I oversaw the magazine’s portfolio of newsletters. I also created and co-hosted the flagship Daily newsletter, read by more than a million subscribers every day.
Previously, I was a reporter and producer at Axios and The Atlantic, a Fulbright scholar in Taiwan, and a Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting fellow in China.
I was born in Hong Kong and studied at Davidson College and St. Catherine’s College, Oxford.
