James Rickman

I’ve held a whole lot of positions with “editor” in the title, and as a freelance writer I’ve covered everything from Scientology to Satanic metal.

In my six-plus years as an editor at Playboy and PAPER, I worked on stories about... so many things, but my favorites include a personal essay about a predatory doctor, a close-up look at the unique challenges facing bisexual men and a profile of Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II. As a steward of the Playboy Interview, I brought Ta-Nehisi Coates, Cecile Richards, Christiane Amanpour and dozens more into our pages. Below you'll find some of my bylines. You are more than welcome to write me at jhrickman [at] gmail [dot] com. Thanks.
