Lindsey B. King runs the editorial department at 5280, which means she does a little bit of everything but mostly spends her days panicking about missed deadlines. She is a six-time ASME National Magazine Award finalist—and a two-time winner—for stories that are either about the great outdoors or, you know, dying. See: “Shattered Minds,”“The 5280 Guide To Winter Camping,” “Sheer Beauty,” “The Art Of Dying Well,” “Earth, Wind & Water,” and “Low On O2.” In 2017, King was named a Folio: Top Women in Media honoree, and many of her other stories, like “Hooked,” “Gone,” and “Undefeated,” have been honored at various journalism awards ceremonies. King was born in Charleston, West Virginia, spent more than a decade in suburban Atlanta, and moved to Colorado in 2001. She has an ABJ in magazine journalism from the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism (Go, Dawgs!). She is unreasonably proud of never having been on Facebook and TikTok confuses her, but she tweets occasionally (@linzbking), looks at dog videos on Instagram (@linzbking), and is trying to figure out Threads (@linzbking).
