Sam Mellins

Hello! I’m an NYC-based journalist, senior reporter 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 Intercept, The Nation, The Appeal, Jacobin, THE CITY, In These Times, City & State, The American Prospect, medievalists.net, and others.

My work has been cited in publications including The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Gothamist, and I’ve appeared on WBAI 99.5FM and The Majority Report on Peacock to discuss my reporting.

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