Hanna Wickes


Staff Writer Hanna Wickes is from the Hudson Valley of New York, which is a fancy way of saying upstate. She’s an avid K-pop fan, idolizes Stevie Nicks to an almost worrisome degree and can often be found reading fantasy novels, tarot cards or her friends’ astrological charts (she’s a Virgo).

Hanna often writes about K-pop, Harry Styles (her first love) and her favorite teen shows.

Work or writing background leading to expertise

She started working as a writer and reporter for J-14 in April 2022, which has been her first stint in the entertainment industry. Prior to that, she gained most of her writing experience as a local news reporter at Straus News, where she also interned in 2019. In 2020, Hanna and her best friends created a submission-based art and fashion magazine called Clementine Magazine, where she wrote and edited articles.


Hanna has a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies with a minor in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where she graduated from in 2020.

Work history

She worked as an intern, writer and prepress coordinator for Straus News prior to being hired at J-14 as a staff writer in April 2022.
