Cally Carswell

Contributing Editor

Cally got her start in public radio before taking the print plunge with HCN in 2009. New Mexico-born, Chicago-raised, Cally spent her pre-HCN decades plotting her return to the Southwest. Happy to once again be a tiny dot in a bid landscape, she writes and edits news and features for the magazine and freelances for other publications from her home in Santa Fe. Cally's work on forest mortality and climate change won a 2014 Science in Society Award from the National Association of Science Writers and a Kevin Carmody award for in-depth reporting from the Society of Environmental Journalists.
