Hello! My name is Nicole Tillotson, and I'm a 23-year-old poem person, writer, and editor currently residing in Brooklyn. Recently graduating from NYU's Summer Publishing Institute, I studied at Southeastern University and graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in digital journalism and minors in graphic design and theology.

I specialize in combining the creative and editorial realms — from copy editing and writing to graphics and design, all topped with a passion for the communities surrounding pop culture, music, and health. More recently, I managed social media for the California-based, online and print magazine, Local Wolves, covering the publication of 22 issues and managing accounts with a net following of over 70,000. The publication features artists and other creatives such as Halsey, Bastille, Troye Sivan, Broods, Tori Kelly, LANY, Porter Robinson, and more.

In the past, I worked as the executive editor for The Meta, a creative collection out of Southeastern University. The magazine constructed an entire rebrand from Southeastern Magazine to The Meta in late 2016, leading to the success of the university's marketing department printing over 10,000 copies and sending the publication out to perspective students.

The newest — I'm an online representative for Glossier! To peep my favorite products and place your first order with 10% off, meander around the link above. If you're interested in a (free!) personalized skincare and makeup plan for you, shoot me a simple little message on any platform — let's bring out your inner beauty, together!

Check out my blog and portfolio for more of my work.

All the best (and hugs!),

Nicole
