About

IMG_8530 (2)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 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 also write a weekly opinion column for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and field extremely colorful email responses as a result. My current musical gigs are as a drummer/singer with the bands Damsel Trash and Meghan Rose & the Bones, and Little Red Wolf (though we’re mostly on hiatus). I’m also the former co-editor of Dane101.com – an independent media outlet that served the state of Wisconsin for eight years.

My writing and photography work has also appeared in The Progressive, IsthmusDane101Wisconsin 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’ve been a frequent guest on WORT 89.9FM’s 8 O’Clock Buzz, as well as various podcasts and radio programs across the state. I love to talk, hit me up.

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, 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.
