About Melanie Taryn

Melanie Taryn Lieberman lives in Jersey City, just outside New York City, and currently as a digital editor at Travel + Leisure magazine. After receiving a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, and a Journalism Minor from Emerson College, she packed up her Boston apartment—which was primarily food magazines and a yoga mat—and headed West(ish) to pursue her career as a journalist.

Melanie’s work has appeared in Boston Common magazine, The Emerson Review, The Connecticut Review, Travel + Leisure magazine, and online at Jetsetter, Bloomberg, Yahoo Travel, SAVEUR, and Thrillist, among others. She has received international recognition for her prose, poetry, and playwriting.

Because her greatest passions are traveling, writing, eating, and fitness, she is happiest when all four happen simultaneously. Follow Melanie’s adventures @Melanietaryn.
