Gillian Russo is a New York City-based digital journalist, writer and editor. She is a recent graduate of Fordham University with a B.A. in journalism and theater, and she writes and edits performance reviews for the international forum Plays To See. Her passions lie in arts and entertainment, particularly theater, but her portfolio also includes hard news reporting, opinion writing, sports and health writing, social media content creation, and multimedia content including photography, videography and even a little graphic design.


She was most recently the online editor of Fordham Lincoln Center's newspaper, The Observer, and has held internships at Study Breaks, Backstage Magazine, Broadway Brands and Mood of Living, as well as Voices Newspaper in her home state of Connecticut. Her blog, Gillian at the Theater, covers her NYC theatergoing adventures and other arts-related content.


"Outgrowing," the book Gillian co-wrote as part of the 2019 Writing Wrongs community journalism program, is out on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
