Announcement from Newsroom Creative Director Greg Manifold:
We are thrilled to announce that Wendy Galietta will become Project Writer.
During her 14 years at The Post, Wendy has distinguished herself as an integral part of collaborations large and small as a member of the photo editing team.

We look forward to Wendy utilizing her vast experiences as she joins the Project Editors team, which is focused on enhancing the newsroom’s most ambitious corporate endeavors. The team is attached to projects from conception to facilitate collaboration and develop coverage and distribution plans.
Wendy started at The Post in 2008 as a photo technician before being appointed assistant systems editor/head of photo ops in 2013. Prior to joining us, Wendy worked in the military as an assistant editor on book projects, including the New York Times bestseller. photo book “Where Valor Lies”.
