Laura Bliss

As a reporter at Bloomberg CityLab, I report on the people, politics and policies that shape cities and other places we call home. 


My writing and reporting have also appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Los Angeles, Mother Jones, Pacific Standard, GOOD, Los Angeles Review of Books, Sierra, and many other publications, including a museum monograph and a forthcoming edition of SOM's Thinkers book series. Sign up for MapLab, my biweekly newsletter about how maps illuminate the world around us. 


I'm represented by Sarah Levitt of Aevitas Creative


I was raised in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley. Before becoming a journalist, I was an educator at the Natural History Museum of L.A. County. Helping create a new exhibit about urban wildlife is what got me interested in cities.
