Adam Wahlberg

AdamWI’m the founder of Think Piece Publishing, an imprint dedicated to mental health advocacy through the arts. I’ve put out several high-profile projects, including Julie Barton’s memoir Dog Medicine, which went on to become a New York Times bestseller; Adam Levy’s album Naubinway, which made top 10 lists around the world; and Janet Burroway’s critically acclaimed Losing Tim. Mark Mallman’s The Happiness Playlist will come out March 19.

From 2010 to 2012, I was editor-in-chief of Super Lawyers. Prior to that, for 14 years, I was executive editor of Minnesota Law & Politics. I currently serve as copy chief at Fast Horse.

In my freelance life, I’ve written for Citizens League Voice, Delta SkyMinnesota MonthlyMinnPost, Mpls/St.Paul, MSNBC, Next Avenue, Pollen, Star Tribune, Tennis, Twin Cities Business, and many other publications. You can find samples of my work on this site.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism from St. Cloud State University and a master’s degree in public affairs from the Humphrey School at the University of Minnesota.

Away from the keyboard, I put a lot of miles on my Asics, haven’t missed a Wilco concert since 1997, and spend a lot of time in bookstores. My dream dinner party would be Elvis Costello, Marilynne Robinson, Barack Obama, Tina Fey, and Andre Agassi.
