CATHERINE CURAN

Writer

Take your reader there. That’s my goal for every story, whether I’m revealing what it’s like to live next door to a foreclosed home owned by a big bank that has let the property fall into disrepair, spending a work day with women forging careers in traditionally male-dominated trades, or covering Joe Boxer’s fashion show in Reykjavik, Iceland. Since 2009, I have worked to expose wrongdoing by major banks and mortgage servicers in residential foreclosure cases in New York, contributing to the passage of stronger legal protections for senior citizens who take out reverse mortgages. I've included samples of investigative stories, news, features, and literary writing here. Please contact me with any questions or comments.

BIO


I am an award-winning journalist with expertise in fashion, retail, and business news. Since 2009, I have covered the foreclosure crisis for the Sunday Business Section of the New York Post. In 2011, I won a Freelance Fellowship from Investigative Reporters & Editors, Inc. for a three-month investigation into residential foreclosures in New York City and surrounding counties, uncovering a broken chain-of-title in most of the cases reviewed. I have taught writing at Athens College in Greece, at Yale School of Management, and at Writopia Lab, winning Teacher Recognition Awards from the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards and Writopia Lab in 2014 and 2015. My short stories have appeared in Arts & Letters, Fiction, Many Mountains Moving, Ozone Park Journal, and the Salon Zine, and I have published a personal essay in The Manifest Station.
