Hello! Welcome to the online portfolio of Emily Mills.

I am a writer, editor, social media manager, musician, photographer, actor, and event organizer living in Madison, Wisconsin.

My current main gig is serving as the Media & PR Manager for the Wisconsin chapter of the Nature Conservancy. I am the emeritus Editor of Our Lives, Madison’s “LGBT&XYZ” magazine, printed six times a year and available for free by mail subscription or around town. I wrote a weekly opinion column for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel from 2013-18, and fielded extremely colorful email responses as a result. My current musical gigs are as a drummer/singer with the bands Damsel Trash, and Little Red Wolf (though we’re mostly on hiatus). I contribute articles on a range of topics for various local, regional, and national outlets on a freelance basis.

My writing and photography work has appeared in The Progressive, Rewire.News, USA Today, NBC Think, Isthmus, Tone Madison, Dane101Wisconsin People & Ideas MagazineOur Lives Magazine, 77 Square, Wisconsin Gazette, Madison Magazine, Derby Central, and I’ve had essays and photos published in Cut From Plain Cloth: The 2011 Wisconsin Worker Protests and We Are Wisconsin.

I co-host the Something Something Roller Derby podcast, and have appeared as a guest on numerous radio and podcast programs.

Interviews & Cool Things:

I’m available as a guest speaker on topics ranging from grassroots journalism, new media, alternative event organization, Wisconsin politics, LGBTQ issues, roller derby, and more. Contact me at lostalbatross AT gmail.com

    Hi Emily… thought you might want to know that your Starkweather Creek photo is on Huffington Post this a.m. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/17/2013-endangered-waterways-list_n_3097197.html. At first I was trying to figure out how they got MY photo 🙂 … then saw your name.
    Good shot! Karen Majkrzak, Carpenter Ridgeway neighborhood.

If yes, I would be interested in your voice recordings! My email is nate.foulks@spectrumbrands.com, please feel free to reach out at any time and we can chat more.

  3. Hey Emily, we met at the Rollin dolls event at Ribina. Are you playing out a.lot? We’re looking for diverse percussion, thought of you. If you’re super busy, a referral is appreciated.
