Monica Young is Sky & Telescope's Web Editor. She joined the staff in 2012 after a brief stint as an editorial intern.
Meanwhile, Monica spent her free time writing for the Association for Women in Science magazine and her own blog, Stars and Spice: The Moving Universe, and later for Penn State's media relations and various other media outlets. Soon, what started as a hobby became her reason for getting up in the morning. So when the opportunity at Sky & Telescope arose, Monica was delighted to join the team.
As S&T's Web Editor, Monica creates, manages, and updates website content, which includes writing and editing articles on the latest news in astronomy science and technology. She also writes and edits articles for the print magazine, manages app production, corresponds with readers, and creates free e-books, among many other things.
