About

jess-pan-photoHello! I’m a freelance journalist who lives in London. After graduating from Brown University, I lived and worked in Beijing for 2.5 years as an editor of an English expat magazine. After completing my Master’s degree in journalism from RMIT in Melbourne, I spent a year as a TV reporter in Beijing and now live in London. You can follow me on Twitter @JessicaLPan.

My friend Rachel and I co-wrote a book about living in Beijing (my part) and living in Paris (her part). It’s called GRADUATES IN WONDERLAND (Gotham Books). To find out much, much more, visit www.graduatesinwonderland.com.

You can get the book here or check it out on Goodreads.

In the meantime, you’ll find me writing: my take on English football for the Guardian Weekend Magazine, features about elves in Iceland for Jezebel, historical baking columns for The Hairpin and The Toast, celebrity profiles, and the trend of embracing spinsterhood, among other things. I’m also a frequent contributor to Broadly (VICE).

I am very partial to North London and welcome any and all tips about the best places for: iced coffee, cute dog sightings, open water swimming and authentic Chinese food. And tacos. Where are the good tacos?
