Stephanie Newman

Hi! I’m Stephanie.

I write about books, culture, and entrepreneurship for places like Lit Hub, Narratively, Quartz, Forbes, and LARB.


I created Writing on Glass for entrepreneurial women.

My blog-turned-business Writing on Glass helps feminist freelancers and entrepreneurs align their work with their values.


Sometimes I speak at events.

Kind Words

I can’t properly put into words how much your words of wisdom are appreciated. Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming in and speaking with us today.

We did exit interviews with our interns and they said the panels and your advice was their fave part! They left feeling inspired, motivated, and honestly like they could do anything (pretty much exact quotes).
— Alexandra F., Bustle Panel Organizer
Something spoke to me about the way Stephanie ran her freelance business, so I took her feminist business plan workshop. Coming out of it, I had so much more clarity about where to spend my time, where not to spend time, and my action plan for the next few months. Also, Stephanie is so knowledgeable, really brilliant and so sweet! I highly recommend working with her.

I loved hearing your story and learning more about feminism and how to get educated on the subject!

My Story

My name is Stephanie Newman, and I'm a writer based in Brooklyn.

My career path has been anything but linear. I've worked as marketing manager at a tech startup in Berlin, a management consultant for Fortune 500 media companies across the U.S., and a remote strategy director for the non-profit literary magazine Nat. Brut.

In 2016, I started a blog called Writing on Glass to help entrepreneurs learn about feminism, and in 2018, I created an online course called Feminist Incubator to help more women to launch businesses.

Eventually, I admitted to myself that above all I wanted to write, so I better start doing it. You can find my latest articles here.

Other facts: I have a B.A. in English from Harvard University, speak some Hungarian, and am an INFJ on the Myers-Briggs scale.

Questions? Thoughts? Collaborations? I would love to hear from you.
