Zach LoNg

Writer based in Chicago


With roots firmly planted in the Midwest, I've has been writing about culture, music, art and film for more than a decade. I've served as the Deputy Editor of Time Out Chicago for nearly five years, covering all of the things that make the city I call home a special place, including summer festivals, local breweries, cultural institutions and the folks making things happen behind the scenes.

I have experience managing an online publication, creating magazines (remember those?), editing the work of other writers and crafting branded content. I enjoy writing short-form articles, interviews, explainers and features. Interested in working on something together? Get in touch!
