A quick introduction…

My name is Monica Mercuri, and I’m a freelance writer based on the East Coast (you’ll likely find me in and around the NYC area). Since January 2019, I’ve freelanced as a contributing writer to Forbes.com, covering the business of media, Hollywood, and entertainment. I also have experience in copywriting, marketing, and social media content creation & management.

In my dozens of interviews with public figures, I’ve been able to speak with celebrities like Wiz Khalifa, Hilary Duff, Queer Eye hosts Antoni Porowski and Bobby Berk, Sarah Hyland, Noah Schnapp, Ashley Tisdale, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and more. My writing has also appeared in BillboardStyleCasterFlighthouse MediaForbes Magazine, and The GW Hatchet.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs with a B.A. and Special Honors in Journalism & Mass Communication. I also enjoy murder mystery podcasts, golden retrievers (or any type of doggo for that matter), and finding the recipe for the best gooiest chocolate chip cookies out there.


Here’s A Quote That Inspires Me…

“It is confidence in our bodies, minds, and spirits that allows us to keep looking for new adventures.”

Oprah Winfrey
