Lissa Harris

Founder & Editor
Watershed Post

Lissa Harris is the editor of the Watershed Post, an online hub for daily news, arts, culture and the environment serving the rural Catskills of upstate New York.

Harris launched the Watershed Post in January 2010, with publisher Julia Reischel, as an experimental new media project to test ideas about rural online news distribution, self-service advertising and new media business models. Three years later, the Watershed Post is a vital presence in the local media landscape, and a self-sustaining member of the local business community.

The Watershed Post played a critical role in keeping information flowing in the region during the devastating flooding from Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, and received several awards from the local business community and the New York State legislature for our service during the floods.

Prior to founding the Watershed Post, Harris was a writer and editor with a background in science writing, the alt-weekly press and community news. She was managing editor of Boston's Weekly Dig from 2005 to 2007, and holds a master's degree in science writing from MIT.
