In addition to trying to make other people's good pieces brilliant as an editor, I'm also a writer. Below are the "greatest hits" as well as my archive at different publications I've written for. You can find my most recent stuff at The American Prospect, my current employer, but I also keep an archive of all my work at archive.gabrielarana.com.
