Cosmopolitan for Latinas
New York, NY

Michelle Herrera Mulligan is the editor of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, the premiere women’s lifestyle publication targeted at English-speaking Latina women.

Prior to Cosmopolitan for Latinas, Herrera Mulligan served as managing editor of LasFabulosas.com, an internationally syndicated website which celebrates Latina success. Her articles and reporting have appeared in more than 20 magazines, including Time, Glamour, and Martha Stewart's Whole Living. She was a founding editor of Latina magazine. 

A prolific author and journalist for more than 10 years, Herrera Mulligan has worked to capture the surging Latina voice in the United States.  She co-edited and contributed to Border-Line Personalities, a groundbreaking collection of essays on culture clash and coming-of-age as a Latin woman in America. The book was course-adopted at universities throughout the country, including Yale and Florida International University, and won an Outstanding Contribution to Hispanic Studies Award in 2006.  In 2007, Herrera Mulligan edited Juicy Mangos, the first-ever literary collection of Latina erotica in English, which Pulitzer Prize-winning author Oscar Hijuelos called, “a collection of stories that offer the reader some real insights on what being a feeling and thinking Latina in today’s world is all about.” 

In September 2012, Atria Books published Herrera Mulligan’s essay, “Anarchy Chicks,” as part of the anthology Count on Me: Las Comadres' Tales of Sisterhoods and Fierce Friendships, which won best multi-author non-fiction at this year’s International Latino Book Awards.

She is a board member of the Latino Rebel Foundation and actively partners with Las Comadres de las Americas, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, among many other dynamic organizations. She is a frequent guest and contributor of the Council of Urban Professionals, and was invited to join a special meeting of journalists and presidential advisors at the White House this past spring. 

This past year, she was nominated as a “revolucionaria” by the Social Revolution at the South by Southwest festival, and was named a 2013 “Woman of Distinction” by the Manhattan Times and Bronx Free Press.
