Experience

Betsy Cribb has worked as Southern Living's features editor since 2020. With nearly 7 years of journalism experience, she writes about a potpourri of topics for both print and digital, from profiling the region's movers-and-shakers to highlighting newsy restaurant and hotel openings.

She first joined the magazine in 2017 as its style editor, producing fashion round-ups and curating the annual holiday gift guide, a package she still spearheads in her role as features editor.

In her time with Southern Living, Betsy helped launch the brand's annual New Southern Tastemakers franchise, a gathering of women entrepreneurs and style mavens that's now in its fourth year. She currently writes three recurring print columns for the magazine: "Picture of Health," a series of health and wellness stories; "In Her Shoes," profiles of women entrepreneurs and trendsetters; and "The Grapevine," a more recent front-of-book addition that highlights newsy, cultural happenings around the South. She writes and edits a variety of feature stories, which run the gamut from food to travel, for print, as well, and most loves stories that celebrate family traditions and businesses.

Previously, Betsy worked as an assistant editor at Coastal Living, where she primarily covered pets and homes.
