Cat Zhang

Hey, I’m Cat! I’m a Brooklyn-based writer who cov­ers books, TV, movies, and mu­sic at New York Magazine’s The Cut. Previously I was an as­so­ci­ate ed­i­tor at Pitchfork, where I edited re­views and wrote widely across the site. In 2022, I re­ceived the American Society of Magazine Editors’ Next Award for Journalists Under 30.
