Why Work With Us
Dismantle Writing Services was founded by Sara Tatyana Bernstein and Elise Chatelain.
They met while earning their PhDs in cultural studies at UC Davis. This experience trained them to be rigorous critical thinkers who know how to translate complex ideas into engaging stories for a wide audience — skills they honed teaching college classes, and continued as freelance writers and as editors and co-founders of Dismantle Magazine.
In addition, Elise is a trained sociologist, while Sara’s earlier academic background included literary and fashion studies. Sara also has experience in nonprofit communications and digital marketing, while Elise has worked in public relations. You can learn more about Sara and Elise here.
Everything they do is motivated by two things:
- Their love of words. They believe that words have power — they make worlds.
- Their love of collaboration. They created Dismantle Magazine so they could continue collaborating after graduate school. They would love to collaborate with you, too!
