Dan Clarendon

Summary

Dan Clarendon is a writer based out of Chicago, where he and his husband live in humble service of their cat. When he’s not testing the limits of his computer keyboard, Dan enjoys exploring the Windy City, hunting down doughnuts in their natural habitat, looking for queer subtext in everything, crafting pun-ishing wordplay and wondering what it must be like to have an empty DVR.

Work or writing background leading to expertise

Dan has been a part-time writer for Us Weekly since June 2018.

Education

He graduated with a B.A. in screenwriting from Hampshire College — where, to his dismay, he did not cross paths with fellow alum Lupita N’yongo.

Work history

Dan previously worked as the features editor for Wetpaint — also serving as show expert for Grey’s Anatomy and Game of Thrones — and his writing has appeared in Queerty, Marie Claire, Life & Style, Closer Weekly, In Touch, WerkLife, A Plus, Daily Mail and TV Insider.
