Sean McCarthy—Freelance Writer
McCarthy has steadily pursued the journalism grind for nearly 20 years. He has written for PopMatters and Paste Magazine, and some of his articles have been referenced in Newsweek and The Sunday New York Times Magazine. Since getting articles referenced in other publications doesn’t pay the bills, McCarthy also works as a user experience designer at a speech recognition software company. He has written about economics, music, and food for Omaha Magazine. In addition to being a vinyl enthusiast, McCarthy spends what free time he has cooking, playing video games, and reading. He’s the proud parent of a 10-year-old Weimaraner named Zoey.
Jarrett Van Meter—Freelance Writer
Jarrett Van Meter is a native of Lexington, Kentucky. Originally a sports writer, his first book, How Sweet It Is, is a first-person account of the 2015-2016 high school basketball season in his home state. He enjoys being outside with his dog.
Sarah Wengert—Freelance Writer
Wengert is a proud communications Swiss Army knife. Whether through journalism, copywriting, poetry, random social media posts, or in person with her hands flailing about, she’s bound to tell you a story to remember. Wengert earned her B.A. in English with a minor in women’s and gender studies from Creighton University. She once served as managing editor at The Reader and has won awards for advertising and poetry alike. Wengert volunteers with the Women’s Fund of Omaha and Omaha Girls Rock. In addition to storytelling, she’s passionate about travel, reading, theater, equity, making lists, making mixtapes (err, they call them playlists now!), and her wonderful friends and family.
