About

laura-headshot2I’m Laura Hudson, a journalist and writer of various media. I was previously the culture editor at The Verge, a senior editor at WIRED, and the founder and editor of the Eisner Award-winning website ComicsAlliance.  I spent over a decade reporting on entertainment, technology and culture, particularly video games, television, comic books, online harassment and feminism. My work has appeared in The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, Slate, FiveThirtyEight, TIME, The Guardian, BBC, Vulture, Complex and The LA Times.

I helped relaunch the video game website Offworld in 2015, and ran a successful Kickstarter that raised over $65,000 for a printed hardcover anthology of its work. I also scripted Ordinary Women, the Feminist Frequency video series about incredible women in history. In 2018, I spearheaded and edited the Better Worlds fiction project at The Verge, which brought together 11 authors to write optimistic sci-fi stories, and co-scripted four animated adaptations of those stories.
