Writing and editing
My name is Carson Frame. I’m a writer working on a master’s in journalism (Literary Reportage) at New York University. I often pursue stories about storytelling and the blind spots in human understanding.
Before coming to New York, I served as an editor for Thread: The University of South Florida’s Literary Journal and, later, as a full-time fiction editor for Driftwood Press, an independently published literary magazine that I helped to establish.
I’m deeply committed to generating conversation about emerging artists and performers. Over the last several years, I’ve written arts features for Metroland: The Capital Region's Alternative Newsweekly, an Albany-based publication. My articles focused on artists who demonstrated powerful connections to their respective neighborhoods. In addition to my work with Metroland, I reviewed museum installations, theater productions, and music events for Discover Albany, a product of the Albany Visitors' Bureau. I also contributed multiple preview pieces to Chronogram, a Hudson Valley arts and culture publication.
Recently, I’ve rekindled my love for audio production and podcasts. Starting in 2009, I covered news and politics for Tampa’s WMNF 88.5 FM Community Radio. In 2015, I put together two audio pieces as part of an NYU audio workshop. The first, overseen by Yowei Shaw, tells a story about our most irritating and overlooked neighbors: construction workers. The second, produced with the help of Alex Kapelman, explores how mental illness blurs the line between fiction and reality, self and other. In the summer of 2016, I worked as a production intern for WNYC's Death, Sex & Money and Narativ's Memory Motel podcast. Please take a listen to my audio work here.
I’d love to hear from you—whether with story ideas, requests for collaboration, learning opportunities, or just to say hello. Thank you for visiting my site.
