Tate Williams



Hi, I’m Tate Williams and this is my website. I’m a writer and editor mostly covering the environment and science, along with occasional articles on music, books, and culture. I’m currently the science and environment editor for Inside Philanthropy.

My work has been featured in several print and online publications, covering topics like philanthropy, NASA missions, punk history, grassroots activism, climate change, and genre fiction. I also write and edit materials for progressive nonprofits and foundations.

I write about a lot of stuff, but my main interests are science funding, environmentalism, and city sustainability. My work has appeared in publications such as The AtlanticBoston MagazineThe Magazine, American Forests Magazine, Curbed, Mental Floss, Souciant, the East Bay Express, the East Valley Tribune, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, and the Arizona Daily Star.

In addition to journalism, I worked for progressive and environmental nonprofits for about 10 years, did a little bartending, and lived in Crater Lake National Park for a season. I grew up in Arizona, and earned a degree in English and journalism from the University of Arizona in the sunny Sonoran Desert. I currently live in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston with my wife Jamie, our small dog Mumu, and cat Knives.
