Olivia Dillingham

Freelance writer

New York City

New York City, NY

I am a writer and, whenever I can be, a traveler. I love writing about art, culture, travel, and everything that moves me. I also love writing content for the brands that I believe in. I have also recently gotten into film photography (see cover photo :)).




Things I Love





Film Photography

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” - William Butler Yeats

Olives & Dill, my website

I started Olives & Dill when I went abroad my junior year of college on Semester at Sea. It has become my favorite project, what feels, when I really think about it, like the center of my life. Travel writing - documenting my journeys with drawings, photography, and words - is my favorite thing, because I think it is utterly transformative, for writers and, sometimes, readers.
My Skills

Fluent in French

I was lucky enough to live in Paris for 7 years growing up


Adaptable Writing Voice

I have written about travel, art, and even tech and real estate, and I only want to expand my portfolio - I love learning, reporting, and telling new stories


Technical Skills

Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere, Audition, Hindenberg, Photography

Please contact me should you need content written for your brand - I love diving into new projects across a wide range of topics and industries (especially ones having to do with travel, lifestyle/wellness, sustainable fashion, and culture), so let's chat. email:
