Monika Bauerlein

From Germany | Journalist


Born in 1965 in Germany, journalist and editor Monika Bauerlein spent time living in several countries in Europe before immigrating to the U.S. on a Fulbright scholarship. After earning her degree at the University of Minnesota, she joined City Pages in Minneapolis, winning a variety of awards for her in-depth articles. In 2000, she joined Mother Jones, a magazine dedicated to investigative journalism in the tradition of Upton Sinclair, eventually becoming co-editor-in-chief with Clara Jeffery. There, she launched a Washington bureau, overhauled the website to emphasize staff-generated news and reporting, and won two National Magazine Awards. In 2013 she and Jeffery were given the Nora Magid Award for magazine editing by the PEN American Center for transforming the magazine from “a respected—if under the radar—indie publication to an internationally recognized, powerhouse general-interest periodical influencing everything from the gun-control debate to presidential campaigns.”
