Sofia Osborne


I'm Sofia Osborne, a freelance writer, editor, and audio producer based in Vancouver, Canada. I love all things journalism, communications, podcasting, and publishing.

My award-winning environmental journalism has appeared in The Narwhal, The Tyee, This Magazine, Passage, Terra Informa, and The Gateway. I also co-host and produce a science podcast called Beyond Blathers.

Have a freelance writing, editing, or audio production opportunity? Please get in touch!
