Hello, I’m Harry Cheadle, a freelance writer and editor living in Seattle, Washington. For 10 years I worked at VICE Media, first on the print magazine and then on VICE.com, editing and writing essays, reviews, and reported features about everything from politics to climate change to gun control to internet culture.
I was part of the VICE Magazine team nominated for a 2012 National Magazine Award for General Excellence. I edited “My Grandma the Poisoner,” a story which appears in Best American Essays 2015. In 2014 I served as the interim Editor in Chief of VICE Sports and in 2016 led VICE.com’s politics coverage during the U.S. election. I was a regular guest on Cheddar TV to discuss politics in 2017 and have appeared on the Slate podcast What Next and the VICE Guide to Right Now podcast. My latest project is a newsletter about failures and mistakes called What Went Wrong?
