laura-headshot2I’m Laura Hudson. I write for TV and games, and 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, 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 scripted four animated adaptations of those stories. I’ve also written popular recaps of television shows like Game of Thrones, Westworld, Twin Peaks, The Americans and The Handmaid’s Tale.
