Good writers are hard to find. The American has been fortunate beyond measure to assemble a group of veteran journalists and younger writers. Since the magazine began publishing online in 2004, some have written once, others dozens of times. But each has done his or her part with enthusiasm and a commitment to professional ethics.
Below you’ll find a list of the most recent contributors to the project (in all, we’ve published some 200 writers). Some live in Italy while others write from afar. A list of their published work for us may be found below their brief biographies. We do not list the personal email addresses of our writers at their request. Some have blogs and personal sites, and many of those are also listed. The writers are responsible for the content of their personal biographies and are also accountable for their spirit and accuracy. Errors in fact, however, are the full responsibility of the magazine. Point them out and we’ll correct them.
If you wish to get in touch with one of our writers about their work you may write to them: [email protected] and your message will be forwarded to them in due course. Whether they choose to answer is up to them.
Finally, while all content has been vetted and edited, the views represented in our reports, interviews, profiles, and first-person columns represent those of the authors and not the magazine. The American is a forum for ideas about Italy and the world around it. It’s also a venue where expatriates can read about what their fellows are thinking. If you’d like to join our team, write to us at the maginfo address and we’ll open up a conversation. Eloquence and insight is what we seek and what we hope to have provided so far. Our magazine is the sum of its wonderfully disparate parts. It is “old school” in that it does not represent a forum for reader ideas and “quickie” feedback. Nor is it a blog. Instead, it is a kind of “log,” which we see as an effort to compile many life narratives, some from Italy, others not. With luck, bits of wisdom follow suit.
