Helaina Hovitz

I’m a native New Yorker who has always had the unreasonable notion that I can help change the world. While I cover everything from lifestyle to culture and food, my greatest passion is writing about charities, social good, nonprofits, societal issues, philanthropy and inspirational people.

I am currently Managing Editor at the Good News Network, New York City Restaurant Guide Editor at The Daily Meal, and a contributor to Forbes and Huffington Post.

Most recently, I served as Editor in Chief and Co-Creator of Affect Magazine and as a Contributing Editor at Avenue Magazine. I have also written for The New York Times, Salon, Newsday, Teen Vogue, Chicago Tribune, SCENE Magazine, Time Out NY, Broadway.com, New York Observer, New York Press, Narratively, amNewYork, The Lo Down, New York Post, the Downtown Express, the Villager, Chelsea Now and Social Life.

I am also going to be making my debut as an author next year….more on that soon!
