Today, National Journal welcomed several new writers and contributors in advance of its June magazine redesign to include Nora Caplan-Bricker, Michelle Cottle, Ethan Epstein, Daniel Libit, and Simon Van Zuylen-Wood.
Cottle, most recently a Washington reporter for The Daily Beast, joins the magazine as a senior writer. Caplan-Bricker will join the magazine as staff correspondent and is currently a staff writer at The New Republic. Van Zuylen-Wood, a staff writer for Philadelphia magazine who has also worked for The New Republic and written for POLITICO Magazine; Epstein of The Weekly Standard; and Libit, formerly with POLITICO, will join the magazine as contributing writers.
In fall 2013, NJ relaunched its website. The print redesign is the second phase of the outlet’s efforts to refresh its brand.
