Maddy Foley is a Books and Lifestyle writer for Bustle, covering everything from the #MeToo reckoning in children's publishing to the health effects of shoveling snow (a hint: hegemonic masculinity is at it again). She has previously written for Inverse, HelloGiggles and the Cape Cod Times. Maddy is currently a Production Fellow at Transmitter Media in Brooklyn, where she assists in the creation of new podcasts.
Maddy has degrees from Kenyon College and Columbia's Journalism School, the latter of which dragged this consummate Midwestern girl to the East Coast (for now, at least). She still works on a farm most weekends and grows peppers on her fire escape. You can find her on Instagram @witchydotgov and Twitter @maddy_efff.
