Helaina Hovitz

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

I am currently Deputy Editor at the Good News Network and a contributor to Forbes, Huffington Post, and The Daily Meal.

Most recently, I served as Editor in Chief and Co-Creator of Affect Magazine and have 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. Additionally, I am a Contributing Editor at Avenue Magazine.
