I thought about burying the lede to make you really work for it, you know? But, we aren’t that kind of community. It has been announced today that I am joining the New York Times as a Contributing Opinion Writer. I will write a weekly newsletter and contribute Tressays on occasion.
dammit, T. now i gotta subscribe to the grey lady. i'd only ever do that for you ... and like maybe 3 other people. also, congrats, i adore you, and more ginormous institutions should recognize your brilliance and give you cash. <3
Congratulations and what a beautiful gift to Night School Bar!!!!
Damn. I’m so proud of you. Congratulations, sister! I look forward to reading you at the Times! No small feat for a little black girl from NC. Many congratulations and best wishes from a little black girl from SC ❤️
AMAZING. I’m thrilled that your work will have a broader platform. Will be following along wherever you lead. 🎉
one million congrats and thank you so much to this team! Perhaps you included them in earlier newsletters and I didn't notice, but this time I so appreciate getting to see and learn about the women and the work behind the scenes of this!
Congratulations! This past year, I have been starting conversations with anyone who will listen with “Tressie says...”. Now I look forward to hearing that said back to me with the wide distribution of your super piercing and big-hearted thoughts. Hooray!!!
Congratulations!! You did that!! Can’t wait to see your name, words, and ideas in the NYT!
Many congratulations to you and Team Tressie! Excited to read you alongside another favorite, Jamelle Bouie :)
Wow! Congratulations Tressie! I'm happy to see your intellect and hard work is being recognized. The NYT is lucky to have you as a contributing writer.
This is great news - not because the NYT is so great, but because more people will get to read your always interesting writing. Congratulations!🎈🎉🍾
Congratulations, heading over to sign up right now, AND I will miss the intimacy of Essaying AND I'm so glad you will be out there in front of the rest of the world, creating more of your biggest fans! (AND you following me on Instagram made my 20 year old say I was "the coolest momma," so as far as I'm concerned, your work on my behalf is done.)
I hope the Grey Lady knows how lucky she is to have you.
Congratulations and thank you for taking on this new role- and for the support of black women
