Mary Otte

I am a freelance writer, editor, leather crafter and cannabis consultant.

As most writers will emote, I've had the writing bug since I was a wee one. Since then I had a long stint as Poetry Editor at The Portland Alliance, a couple solid years of writing book reviews for The New York Post, well over a decade of freelancing for HIGH TIMES Magazine and HT online; I've written for international rags as I travelled around and generally just love to write. I've also edited books, others' work and entire websites; I've composed copious amounts of corporate copy and have given my all as a consultant to those in the cannabis industry. I also create leather portraits and run the website for said portraits at Feel free to contact me regarding new opportunities or pop culture leather portraits at
