Hello there!

Hello there. I am Lisa Palmer and welcome to my site. I’m a journalist and writer, a contributor to magazines and online media sites, a freelance editor, a backpacker, a NOLSie, a cyclist, a wife and mother, and a student of the piano hooked on the classic techniques of nineteenth century pianist Charles-Louis Hanon. I’ve written a lot of news and feature articles on science, green energy, climate change, green building and design, and the environment; and I’ve posted some stories here. There’s also information about my background and my professional affiliations.

Since becoming a freelance writer in 2000, I have written on everything from biotechnology and dramatic medical narratives to green tech and sustainable agri-business for leading magazines and newspapers.  Recent projects include freelance stints as a writer and editor for the National Academy of Sciences and as a producer of a reporting guide for journalists covering the green jobs beat for the Knight Center for Specialized Journalism. I am a graduate of Boston University and earned my master’s degree at Simmons College in Boston. Prior to my career as a writer, I was a teacher and a research analyst.

My greatest strength as a writer lies in my ability to jump among diverse communities. Some days I’ll write about a prenatal blood test or cover stories in high crime and poverty neighborhoods. Other days I’ll interview a NASA scientist, talk with the superintendent of an urban school about education reform, sit down with a CEO of a Fortune 500 company to discuss climate change, or have a Tony award winner show me his latest set design. That said, I am deft at covering a variety of topics in both ends of the socio-economic spectrum without pandering to subjects or readers.

I am also a skilled and enthusiastic moderator and speaker. I have appeared before university audiences and at numerous conferences, including the Society of Environmental Journalists’ annual conference. To hire me as a speaker, click here.

Thanks for visiting lisapalmer.com and stop back soon.

    Hello, Lisa – Hope you enjoy your life in Washington – our loss here in RI. I had contacted you through Stephen Palmer and you published an article about our RI Short Story Club’s (whose founder was Stephen’s great-grandmother) newest book, “The RI Short Story Club presents…” – visit our website.

In the meantime, contact Andreas Kraemer – your and his interests intersect when it comes to environmental issues, and I am sure it would benefit both of you, regards, Ingrid Wild Kleckner

    Hi Ingrid:

    It is great to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words. I miss Rhode Island immensely, but have enjoyed meeting a tremendous number of talented people who live and work in the Washington, D. C., area. I will be in RI this summer and hope to stop by for a visit. Please give my best to Stephen next time you see him.
