Scott Atkinson

Scott Atkinson’s essays and articles have appeared in The New York Times, The GuardianHour Detroit, and other publications. For this issue, he briefly got in the ring with Claressa Shields — the first American boxer to win consecutive gold medals at the Olympics, as well as the first female boxer from the U.S. to win gold (page 25). Shields learned the boxing ropes in Flint, a city Atkinson has been reporting on since he was a journalism student and for many years as a staff writer for The Flint Journal. He is the editor of the essay collection Happy Anyway: A Flint Anthology, and teaches writing at the University of Michigan-Flint. 

 

Serena Maria Daniels

Serena Maria Daniels is the co-founder and editor of Tostada Magazine, an independent media outlet that celebrates the rich culture of metro Detroit’s food scene. Daniels visited Flowers of Vietnam to see if the recently remodeled restaurant would keep serving excellent food but also retain its southwest Detroit neighborhood feel (page 35). Daniels’ food writing has appeared in NPR’s The Salt, Lucky Peach, Eater, Extra Crispy, and the Metro Times. Her favorite tacos come from back home in Los Angeles, she doesn’t believe in ketchup on hot dogs, and prefers her pizza square.

 

Lauren Hom

Lauren Hom is a designer and letterer from Los Angeles who recently moved to Detroit. Known for her bright color palettes and playful letterforms, Hom has created work for clients such as Starbucks, Google, AT&T, YouTube, and Time magazine. See her work on the cover of this issue, as well as in our City Guide (page 48). Hom is also the author of the popular blog and book Daily Dishonesty. Her motto is, and will always be: “Work hard, snack often.”
