Who am I and what is Philly Clearing?
I’m a 26-year-old freelance writer and journalist based in Philadelphia. But I’m not from here. Nor am I formally trained in writing or reporting. Philly Clearing is a small part of my ongoing effort to earn the right to call this city my home, and this line of work my profession. Most often I try to trade my writing for money. Here’s where I publish what I can’t persuade anyone to pay me for.
