About

Laurie Ulster

I’m a New York-based writer, TV producer, and copy editor.

My writing has been featured at ScreenRant, Biography, TheBump, and at Scary Mommy, The Chefs Connection, Momtastic, Women at Warp, StarTrek.com, YourTango, My Fave Places, Fuse, and Purple Clover, and I'm a regular contributor to Taffeta. I'm a contributing writer on the book "What to Watch When: 1,000 TV Shows for Every Mood and Moment."

I'm also a former website director (so I know my way around a CMS and SEO) and copy editor for digital, print, and video.

I’m a Senior Editor of TrekMovie.com, the biggest unofficial Trek site on the web, and co-host the All Access Star Trek podcast. It’s a passion project.
