P.E. Moskowitz


About Me:
I write Mental Hellth, a newsletter about your broken brain. Subscribe if you’d like. I’ve given dozens of talks and lectures, taught college classes, written two books, and am writing a third. I co-founded the media collaborative Study Hall. I was born and raised in NYC and still live here. I’m trans and use they/them pronouns. I also love dogs, but I guess that’s not very unique.

Current News:
I am writing a book called RABBIT HOLE, a braided work of memoir, history, research, theory, and cross-country reportage reckoning with the role that drugs play in society and investigating how we can break free from our modern despair using drugs. The publishers are Atria Books (Simon and Schuster) in the United States and Bloomsbury in the U.K.
