Alysha V. Scarlett

Alysha Scarlett, described by a rival community newspaper as a “big-city cousin,” has had bylines in USA TODAY, Screen Rant, Bleacher Report, several times in Patch, and many times in The Good Men Project. Also, her work has appeared in ESPN, Yahoo! Finance, MSN, Yahoo! Sports, the Pew Forum, and the U.S. News & World Report. Alysha is the author of “‘Star Wars Is Still Intact: Re-finding Yourself in the Age of Trump.” Also, Alysha was a screenwriter for “Before Your Time,” which showed in theatres in multiple states.

Currently, Alysha writes at That Hashtag Show and Medium. She has also written or edited for online publications like Animation World Network, The Inquisitr and Thought Catalog. Alysha’s work has also appeared in the Deseret News, the Billings Gazette, the Casper Star-Tribune, and more than two dozen other publications. That includes eight newspapers in the west, including a student magazine she co-founded in college and four of the five largest newspapers in Utah. (She has covered the Utah Jazz and University of Utah football.) Further, Alysha has done journalism on blockchains.

Alysha has been awarded for her work 13 times by the Society of Professional Journalists and Religion Newswriters Association over five years of applying for them, as part of a six-and-a-half-year journalism career (10 in mass communications).

Alysha worked for the national non-profit Vote Smart, which provides non-partisan information to the public about candidates. She interned in Washington, D.C. She has been successful as pro se in law, winning multiple cases, including one she brought about herself through a lawsuit. Also, Alysha held other roles for “Before Your Time.”

Alysha’s coverage of Green River, Wyo., drew ire exclusively of the governments in the town. Then the school board passed a policy that the Wyoming Press Association attorney called a “far cry” from the Wyoming Public Records Act. That the ire exclusively lied with those governments — and that folks advocated for her to management — makes her feel like she did her job as she should have.

Alysha has reported stories like if Green River’s ordinance lined up with state law, as required by statute; what town halls in the wake of the 2016 presidential election said about members of Congress; a revelation of details about transhumanists; that Rep. Mia Love used campaign funds for out-of-state fundraising at Disney World; President Donald Trump rejecting non-traditional media in Utah after fighting against traditional media otherwise; and a Kaysville, Utah videographer getting a film onto the big screen. And that Love still owed $372,468, as required by the Federal Election Commission. None of the media in Utah, where the district is that Love represented, reported this.
