Emily Ludolph


Emily Ludolph has written for the leadership of Fortune 100 companies, hedge funds, and startups.

She started her career shepherding ideas to the stage as part of the TED Institute, TED’s business and organizational change program, working alongside partners like IBM, Boston Consulting Group, and State Street. She has reported for the New York Times’ archival storytelling project, where her work on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing was featured in a special Sunday section and an episode of “The Daily” podcast. Most recently, she covered creative careers and business as senior editor at 99U magazine. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Narratively, 99U, Airmail, Quartz, Artsy, Design Observer, and Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine and has been featured on “best of the year” and “editor picks” lists.

When she’s not slinging sentences for West Wing Writers, her wordsmithing includes crafting crossword puzzles for the LA Times and lyrics for the BMI Musical Theater Workshop. The topic of her first book, slated for announcement in 2020, is her ideal intersection of history and musical theater, but still needs to be kept a secret.

She is a graduate of Vassar College.
