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.

For a tiny window into my world, check out this story in Metro U.S.!

I am currently Editor in Chief of Affect Magazine and a contributor to Forbes, Huffington Post, and The Daily Meal.

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. Additionally, I am a Contributing Editor at Avenue Magazine.

Additionally, I work as a media outreach professional, helping changemakers with heart find homes for their stories.
