I'm Eliot Stein.


I'm a writer and editor who thinks compelling storytelling makes the world hum.

My work has appeared in The New York Times, WIRED, The Guardian, The Washington Post, Vice, Condé Nast Traveler, CNN, USA Today, National Geographic, The Independent, and elsewhere.

I'm also a deputy editor at BBC Travel, where I write a column called Custom Made that highlights creative characters and cultural custodians making our world a more interesting place. One of my stories for the column recently won the grand prize at the 87th annual Writer's Digest Competition.

I'm happiest in a kayak, a treehouse, or a bike lane. This week I'm moving from Berlin to Brooklyn.
