Reneé Linen


News Writer, Bellatory

Reneé Linen has been a full-time freelancer for well over two decades now. Her byline (via a few pen names) has been featured in well over 80 different publications at this point covering everything from relationships and sex to self-help and pampering to fashion and beauty. 

Although her passion is all things relationships, her time as an entertainment journalist (over a decade) has caused her to develop a pop culture interest in beauty; especially when it comes to melanated people and things that are au naturel.


  • Reneé Linen’s professional writing career began by interviewing breakout musicians for an entertainment mag that was published by a national sneaker brand. Since then, she’s been a feature columnist for pop culture publications, an entertainment columnist for the major newspaper in her city.
  • She’s written for various publications including Little Things, Naturally Curly, The List, Café Mom, YourTango, Simply Bridal, She Knows, Linen Chest, The Good Men Project, Parent, Women's Health & Fitness and Love Life Health. 
  • She also was a feature writer for several years for a now defunct platform that developed content for celebrities. Some of the ones she regularly wrote for include Laila Ali, Vanessa Hudgens, Lisa Rinna, Raven Symone, Christina Milian, JWoww, Snooki and NeNe Leakes.
  • Reneé is a published author, counselor, former magazine consultant for a women’s lifestyle publication, former radio host for a Black-centered news show, has served as the managing editor for an online platform that deals with sex addiction and has covered fashion for international publications from an “across the pond” perspective.


Reneé Linen has accomplished a lot in the publishing industry. Interestingly enough, she attended a college the South, majoring in journalism and stopped during her third year in order to pursue a few time-sensitive offers (college ain't for everybody). She's had no regrets.
