About

Samantha Tisdel Wright

Samantha Tisdel Wright is a nationally recognized independent journalist and freelance writer based in Silverton, Colorado.

She is the recipient of the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Breaking News from the Society of Professional Journalists for her reporting on a double-fatality at the Revenue Mine near Ouray, Colo. in 2013. She has also won numerous awards from the Colorado Press Association and The Society of Professional Journalists' Colorado chapter. 

Before settling into her career in journalism (and settling down to raise a family), Wright explored far-flung corners of the world ranging from the Silk Road to the Killing Fields to the crocodile-infested rivers of Queensland, Australia. She has pulled pints in a 500-year-old English pub, cast nets from a commercial fishing boat in Alaska, taught English in the People’s Republic of China, and worked as a firehouse dispatcher and science writer at McMurdo Station, Antarctica.
