A year and a half after taking the job as co-critic at the Village Voice, Lauren Shockey tells Eater that she's stepping down from her post at the end of this week. In a statement, she notes:
While I have had an amazing experience working at the Village Voice, I have given my notice to pursue freelance projects elsewhere. This will be my last week at the paper, and I have two more reviews slated to come out.Last summer, Shockey published a memoir called Four Kitchens, about her experiences working behind the line before she became a professional food writer. Right now, the Voice is actively looking for her replacement, who will serve as co-critic with Robert Sietsema, and write for the site's blog, Fork in the Road.
