Laura Bullard is a Lumbee writer, editor, and fact-checker. For over a decade, she has worked in journalistic, corporate, and nonprofit capacities across the United States.
As a fact-checker and researcher, her clients include Jezebel, the New York Times, Lapham’s Quarterly, MarieClaire.com, Crooked Media, the Los Angeles Times, Neon Hum Media, The Verge, Esquire, and The Goods, among others.
She works primarily in long-form media and checks against vetted and verified primary and secondary sources for any errors and inconsistencies. She conducts interviews when necessary to verify factual assertions and works closely with journalists and editors to ensure clean, error-proof copy.
Laura is the nonfiction c0-editor of Nat. Brut Magazine and a former staff copy editor at INDY Week. She has worked as a freelance copy and content editor for Vogue.com, Loose Threads, Dr. Oz | The Good Life, and Racked.
In her journalistic practice, Laura focuses on the interplay between identity and power structures with a focus on gender, sexuality, race, and mental illness. She has written for the New York Times, MarieClaire.com, Jezebel, and INDY Week.
Laura believes that strong content must be intersectional and inclusive. There is no space in her practice for racism, sexism, classism, ableism, anti-Semitism, ageism, transphobia, or heterosexism. If, in your editing process, you are actively screening for these -isms (and you should be), Laura is the editor for you.
She lives with her fiancée Kayla E. and three animal daughters in North Carolina.
