My name is Micah Uetricht, and I’m the editor of Jacobin magazine. I’m the author of two books: Strike for America: Chicago Teachers Against Austerity (2014) and, with Meagan Day, Bigger than Bernie: How We Go From the Sanders Campaign to Democratic Socialism (2020), both from Verso Books. I am currently at work on a book on New Left–era radicals who “industrialized” beginning in the 1970s, obtaining jobs in industries like auto, railroads, and coal mining with the intention of organizing.

I also was the host of the Jacobin podcast The Vast Majority and work as newsletter editor and occasional guest host of the podcast The Dig. I occasionally teach a class on writing for organizers through the journal The Forge. I’m working on a documentary on the Teamsters’ 1997 UPS strike.

I have a decade and a half of writing and editorial experience and am available for freelance opportunities to edit articles, pamphlets, books, scripts, and more.

I live in New York City.
