Sam Mellins

Hello! I’m an NYC-based journalist, associate editor at New York Focus, and contributor to The Daily Poster. My work focuses mostly on criminal justice, labor, and electoral politics.

I’ve written for The Nation, The Appeal, Jacobin, THE CITY, City & State, medievalists.net, and others.

My work has been cited in publications including The New York Times, New York Magazine, and The Intercept, and I’ve appeared on The Majority Report to discuss my reporting.

I’ve also worked as a chef, research assistant, and political organizer in North Dakota.
