My Website / Portfolio: http://hannahpitstick.com
I am a Durham-based journalist who writes on everything from couples with frighteningly small houses to men with alarmingly large taxidermy collections. After graduating with a journalism degree and working on the features desk of a daily newspaper, I began freelancing and expanded my range beyond human interest features to include stories such as the rush to get IUDs following the 2016 presidential election and the ways in which religion and politics uncomfortably overlap in North Carolina.

I have freelanced for a variety of publications on topics including the rush to get IUDs after the 2016 election, real-life cyborgs who have technology fused into their bodies, a transgender woman living in NC during HB2, and a New York socialite with 400 pieces of taxidermy.
I am also a member of the North Carolina Newsroom Cooperative, a collaborative journalism organization currently looking into the intersections of religion and politics in North Carolina.
