About Brenda Rees

Words, words, words! I love words!

I’m an experienced writer who knows her way around a thesaurus, can interview the toughest of subjects and has a knack of distilling complicated topics down to a compelling story told with just the right amount of wit and flair.

My published work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, Westways Magazine, Arroyo Monthly, Pomona College Magazine, L.A. Parent Magazine, The Tidings Weekly, Pasadena Magazine as well as The EastsiderLA blog. For eight years, I have been a case study writer for ArtCenter College of Design’s Designmatters program. I’ve been editing The Griffith Observer, the newsletter of the nonprofit Friends of Griffith Park where I am also a board member, for five years.

Currently, I am working on a series of personal essays that will help me understand how, after years of personal and collective trouble and turmoil, I still wake up reasonably happy to be alive and cautiously optimistic about what could be coming up over the horizon. Stay tuned.
