The Habits of Highly-Effective Health Writers


Lisa Lombardi is a writer/editor and co-author of What the Yuck?! The Freaky & Fabulous Truth About Your Body. On this episode of Write About Now, she talks to me about her dynamic career, which has included top editorial jobs at YM, TwistRedbook, and, Health.

 It was at the latter where she realized her true passion for health and wellness journalism. Lisa also gives advice to aspiring health writers about how to break into the market, the health stories editors just can't get enough of, and the truth about blotting your pizza slice with napkins.

Lisa also shares some crazy tales from the editorial front lines, including one memorable, #metoo moment with Sugar Ray frontman, Mark McGrath. You won't want to miss it!
