Katie Tandy

Katie Tandy is the co-founding editor of three digital media publications: Ravishly, The Establishment — a multimedia site championing marginalized voices, stories and creators that shuttered in April 2019 — and a new literary site, PULP, which centers on sexuality and reproductive rights. A veteran alt-weekly journalist, Katie has worked as a reporter for The East Hampton Star, SF Weekly, East Bay Express, The Ark, and Oakland Magazine. She is particularly interested in the intersection of art and social justice. In her spare time, she is working on the latest iteration of her rock musical adaptation of Ovid’s Pygmalion — renamed Galatea — fronting the Oakland rock band The Shattucks, and rapidly consuming paperbacks. She lives in West Oakland.
