Erica Hawkins



Raised in Carolina

Hello, there! My name’s Erica, and I’m an editor and journalist based in New York City. I’m an avid believer in ‘70s fashion, the healing power of guitar solos, and that the stories we share are what make us human.

Currently, I’m a contributing editor for independent print magazine LADYGUNN, a contributing entertainment writer for women-focused lifestyle site HelloGiggles, and managing editor for the creator-first tech company Patreon.

Read my articles on travel, fashion, culture, and entertainment in Huffington Post, Playboy, Nylon, and more.
