Biography

Jia Tolentino is a staff writer for The New Yorker website and formerly deputy editor of Jezebel and contributing editor at The Hairpin. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, and Pitchfork. Tolentino has won accolades writing across genres. Flavorwire called her a "go-to music source," while her first short story won the fall 2012 Raymond Carver Short Fiction Contest and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She has also drawn attention for essays on topics like race in publishing, marriage, and notions of female empowerment, as well as for no-holds-barred music criticism: The A.V. Club admired "Tolentino's sick burns on Charlie Puth" and Studio 360 observed that even in the near-universal panning of Magic!'s song "Rude", "no criticism has been quite as cutting as Jia Tolentino's." Tolentino attended UVA where she was a Jefferson Scholar-Joseph Chappell Hutcheson Scholar. She then earned an MFA from the University of Michigan.
