Shannon Miller is a writer and editor based in Las Vegas. She writes about arts and entertainment, travel, lifestyle and news for Vegas Seven, DTLV.com and Nevada Current. She contributes writing, editing and social media pro bono for Battle Born Progress and Forced Trajectory Project.
In 2016–2017, Shannon worked at Vegas Seven as an editorial assistant, columnist and contributor on topics of film festivals, fresh-baked laffa and Latinx representation. The grind of working for the award-winning urban weekly magazine and its associated websites refined her skills in editorial writing, fact-checking, copy editing and meeting deadlines.
While an undergraduate at Seattle University, Shannon was a contributing editor at Miroir Magazine and a communications intern for a Seattle nonprofit where she created email, social media and other marketing content. Shortly after obtaining a bachelor’s degree in English literature, she landed her first freelance gigs copy editing for a college in Tempe, Arizona and copy writing for a web development company in Las Vegas.
Shannon currently works full time as a coordinator, social media manager and communications specialist for Green Our Planet—a Las Vegas nonprofit that establishes garden programs on school campuses. In April 2019, the 501(c)3 was recognized for outstanding civic leadership by the Obama Foundation.
