I’m so pleased with how this essay I wrote about being on SNAP — known informally as food stamps — for a year while I was writing my book. As I note in the essay, this wasn’t “reporting,” but basic poverty. I really look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts on the piece! (And remember: If you comment on pieces online, editors know it’s a topic they have an audience for and are more likely to assign related pieces!)
