Penelope Bass is a writer and editor based in Portland, a city she has called home for seven years. Working as a journalist for more than a decade, her writing has appeared in both regional and international publications, from her home state of Arizona to London’s The Sun. She is a regular contributor to the Willamette Week and currently serves as the associate editor for national drinks magazine Imbibe, a job that finds her frequently drinking elaborate cocktails, bizarre beers and way too much coffee. She will eat nearly anything you put in front of her, particularly if it is raw.
