Writer • Editor • Storyteller

Natasha Gardner is an award-winning writer and editor living in Denver, Colorado. After more than a decade spent working at 5280 magazine, Gardner now crafts creative copy for clients, works as a freelance journalist, and is launching the Denver Letter, a newsletter that will help you navigate and understand the city better.  

Natasha has a master’s degree in newsgathering from the University of Colorado and a B.A. in sociology from Smith College. She was named a finalist for a 2012 National Magazine Award in the public interest category. And she appears regularly on Colorado Public Television (CPT12) as a Colorado Inside Out panelist to discuss current affairs, politics, and social issues.

When she’s not typing away on her laptop, she might be hiking in the Rocky Mountains, skate skiing, reading, or trying new recipes.
