I’m Shelby Traynor. I’m a writer, journalist, and radio producer who looks at culture, science, human interest, and daily news.

In the context of this blog, I’m a creative writer working in different mediums – out there in the world I’m a radio journalist. I’m also founder/editor of Paper Crown magazine.

Now that the virtual, professional handshake is over, here’s a list of things I enjoy:

  • Ray Bradbury
  • This short story by Neil Gaiman
  • Adrien Brody’s legs
  • Stop motion films
  • Jad Abumrad or Robert Krulwich depending on the day
  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt
  • The aesthetic of a stack of Nat Geo magazines
  • Rookie mag
  • Jupiter
  • Cereal on a Tuesday
  • Shameless self-promotion
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • Goodreads

If you have any questions email me at shelbyrtraynor@gmail.com. I can recommend a killer podcast.

  1. Don’t think of your dream as unrealistic, anything can happen if you put your focus and attention to it. As a writer you must read, The War of Art. It is the best book ever for a writer and I have gotten so much from it. Enjoyed your page. Good Luck to you!!!!

  2. Dear Shelby,

    I’m an editor at The Northwest Review, an upcoming op-ed and news analysis website, where we also publish creative nonfiction. I think some of your writing might be perfect for some of our early articles.

    If you’re interested, please send us an email at contact@thenorthwestreview.com.

    If not, please keep up the great writing.
