Hey there! My name is Arbela and I’m an editor and freelance journalist residing in Cleveland, Ohio. I’m currently in my senior year at Cleveland State University where I’m pursuing a double major in Journalism and Women’s Studies along with a minor in Sociology. I’m currently working as the Print Content Editor for Substream Magazine, a national music and culture magazine, where I’ve been since October of 2017. I’m also currently the Editor-in-chief of the The Vindicator , Cleveland State’s arts and culture magazine.
My writing mainly focuses on topics of culture, social issues, gender and health. My full list of clips and published work can be found on my Clips page. I’m also well versed in writing about music, local news, lifestyle topics, fashion and travel. I have fast turnaround for online pieces and experience in copy editing, fact-checking and long-form feature writing.
