Susan Hartman has written cover stories and profiles for The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, and Newsday, often following her subjects for months. Her Jump Rope Girls multi-media project documents a group of women she first profiled for The Times when they were talented double-Dutch jumpers on a troubled Brooklyn block. City of Refugees, an ongoing project, documents three refugee families as they adapt to an old American manufacturing city. 

She has teamed up with photographers, producing photo essays for The Times about a Bronx salsa club, a prayer conference call, and a boxer. 

She is the author of two books of poetry, Dumb Show and El Abogado, and a chapbook, Satyr.
