writings: non-fiction

I’ve been working as a freelance writer, journalist and editor for the last six years or so and I’ve written on nearly every topic under the sun, although I have a soft spot for dissecting pop culture.

Some of the present and past sites I’ve contributed to include ScreenRant, Comic Book Resources (CBR), Thought Catalog, Your Tango, Femestella, Lifehack, Bolde, Cinema Catharsis, Interstellar Flight Magazine, The Statesman, Luna Luna Magazine, FluentU (English Learner and Business English blogs), The Richest, The Things, New York Film Academy, Quail Bell Magazine, Youth Ki Awaaz, Open Road Review, Blasting News, EyeZine and others.

Below are some of my selected publications. If you’re interested in samples of my ghostwritten and other work, please feel free to drop a message at architamittra1996@gmail.com.
