Coley Wright is a Senior Writer at The Onion, where she has served as nearly every variant of lowly contributor since 2012. Previously, she worked in television editing, off-Broadway theater, screenplay development, and is a 2015 recipient of the Golden Achievement Award from the Academy of Excellence, a highly prestigious honor established for the purposes of this bio. She is based in Chicago but remains a Michigander at heart.

Lauren Moser currently lives in Chicago, where she is a Senior Editor for The Onion. Previously, she was a Senior Writer/Associate Editor for ClickHole, and last summer, she worked as a staff writer for the first season of SYFY’s original animated comedy, Alien News Desk. Before pursuing comedy, she studied electrical engineering and worked as a computer programmer, which is crazy, because now her brain is totally useless.

Libby Schreiner is a Senior Staff Writer for America’s Finest News Source™, The Onion. She received a chemistry degree from Iowa State University and spent five years as an industrial paint chemist before throwing it all away to live at the mercy of the ever-changing media landscape. She hopes to one day win an award.
