Margit Detweiler, Founder, Publisher + Editor-in-Chief of this jam — @Margit
Rather than rattle off a list of places I’ve worked (which you can see here, or here), this is where I’m at, right now, in this moment: I’m a writer, editor and digital publishing vet / business owner with a punk-rock heart, a Brooklyn apartment and arthritic knees. I’m also a recent cancer survivor and have chronicled my experiences in the TueNight column, Ovarian Rhapsody. My best professional experiences have included a combination of creativity, writing, leadership and a work environment filled with ridiculously talented creative spirits. My secret agenda: I’m trying to build that, from scratch.
My TueNight: Wander late night through street lamp-lit New York City streets with @gigajellyroll, looking at buildings and making up songs.
Karen Gerwin, Newsletter Editor — @karengerwin
I’ve always loved storytelling, and it seemed like a dream come true to discover I could get paid to read books. But, after nearly 20 years in the publishing world, I needed a change. I had the most fun co-creating the Twitter parody account @paulryangosling with my soul sisters, The Mouthy Housewives, then spent two years snarking on Brooklyn’s favorite family-friendly neighborhood at F***ed in Park Slope. Now I’m having a blast rocking the TueDo List for TueNight.
My TueNight: Listening to Martha Wainright and reading the latest Jhumpa Lahiri…or, you know, drinking pinot grigio and watching The Real Housewives.
My TueNight: Catching up on some good TV and calling up one of my friends to have a lengthy discussion about what transpired. Followed by performing a solo concert of the current song stuck in my head.
Adrianna Dufay, TueNight Live coordinator — @ProleDufay
As a girl, I made a pact with myself that I would be everything when I grew up. I’ve worked on an assembly line, in a lumber mill, as a waitress, preschool teacher, political fundraiser, proofreader and actor. I’ve spent a decade as a product manager and director. I currently work with my husband @macpremo, producing and managing his art studio. My passion is making things collaboratively, and my superpower is helping people stay calm under pressure.
My TueNight: Make a tasty dinner with daughters and husband, then on to drinks at a wine bar with friends.
