Freelance writer Jessica Colley Clarke covers cuisine, culture, the arts, and experiential travel. Her articles have appeared online, in print, and in guidebooks.
Recent work has been published in AFAR magazine, The New York Times, Bon Appetit, Wall Street Journal Magazine, New York magazine, Departures, Food & Wine, Tasting Table, The San Francisco Chronicle, Toronto Star, Postcards magazine, and World Hum. In 2013, one of her stories was chosen as a notable selection in the Best American Travel Writing anthology.
Currently based in New York City, Jessica called Dublin home for several years and writes frequently about the unsung stories of life in Ireland’s capital city and across the Emerald Isle.

Jessica has worked as an editor, copywriter, blogger, and in the fields of poetry and literature. Beyond New York City and Dublin, she has lived in Miami, Savannah, Berlin, Oxford, and the Campania region of Italy–but loves having a cappuccino somewhere new.
