Hi! I’m Gwendolyn Wu.

I’m a print and digital journalist with a background in local news.

My day job is writing Bay Briefing, the San Francisco Chronicle’s flagship newsletter, and other utility journalism for the Bay Area’s largest newspaper. Before that, I spent a couple years as a business reporter at the Houston Chronicle, writing about the healthcare industry and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to moving to Texas, I was a fellow covering breaking news at the San Francisco Chronicle. My previous pit stops include TakePart.com, San Francisco Magazine, the Santa Barbara Independent and the Asian American Journalists Association’s VOICES program.

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I studied history and sociology and minored in professional writing. However, I spent most of my time writing for and editing The Bottom Line, UCSB’s alt-weekly publication.
