Marta Djordjevic


Marta Djordjevic is a pop culture writer and editor living and working in Vancouver, Canada.



The following is a collection of my favorite writing projects. I am currently working as a features editor at Nicki Swift, guest editor at Looper, and as a freelance writer at Grunge, with a focus on old Hollywood nostalgia and cinema.

I’m always working on something on the side. You can find my work at Localeur - both on their website and podcast (here and here), along with my poetry, which can be found at Everytime Zine (here and here). For years, I also ran my blog, Paradise Playground, where I interviewed various musicians and collaborated with Netflix, Taro PR, and Elevation Pictures to review upcoming movie releases.

I hope you enjoy my work and I invite you to contact me with any questions.
