Catherine Woodiwiss is Associate Web Editor at Sojourners.
Woodiwiss has worked with print, online, and multimedia journalism. Her favorite posture is as ethnographer, tracing the spread of ideas, objects, and beliefs through time and place—and reporting on their real-world consequences in institutions and public discourse.
She formerly wrote for the Center for American Progress, with contributing pieces at ThinkProgress, Catapult, and Macalla. Her writing most recently was highlighted in The New York Times.
For the last three years, Woodiwiss has been workshopping memoirs on loss, memory, reconciliation, sisters, and narrative statehood. Will she ever finish? Time will tell. In the meantime, her primary goal is to "make DC weird," which is how she came to be co-founder of both a design platform and a live music venue network in DC. Abiding likes include porch jams, getting grubby in nature, and futbol. Abiding dislikes are small talk, abuses of power, and football. The jury's still out on twitter: find her @chwoodiwiss.
