I freelance and, to be blunt, it’s not enough to pay the bills. If you like my work, please support me in any way you can through my Patreon account.

  • Freelancing primarily with nonprofit publications South Seattle Emerald and International Examiner
  • Obtained a Journalism B.A. from the University of Washington (UW) with Interdisciplinary Honors and a minor in Law, Societies & Justice
  • Previous President and VP of the Society of Professional Journalists UW student chapter
  • Reported for the UW’s student-run newspaper, The Daily, while freelancing with multiple Seattle outlets for three years

Categorical expertise: Politics, legalities and policies, immigration, and homelessness.

My primary clips can be accessed here

There’s a separate website for my undergraduate experience and what I accomplished.


I know my route in journalism involves the moment legalities, systems and policies touch people’s everyday lives.

As media and society progress, or regress, journalism transforms. I want to be a part of that transformation, maybe even pioneer it.

One thought on “Kelsey Hamlin

  1. Kelsey, please get in touch if you are interested in some history on the model that actually worked in the 90’s. This is a great example of for-profit privatization of a government service with crappy consequences. Can give you contacts of other people to interview as well.
