My name is Helen Rosner. I write and edit things. Mostly food things, but generally speaking I have deep thoughts and strong opinions on many topics. (You can read some of them in this interview with me on Pursuitist, or listen to me say them out loud in this interview on the Heritage Radio Network.)
I'm the Executive Digital Editor at Saveur magazine. I've been an editor at sites like Grub Street New York, Grub Street Chicago, and Eat Me Daily; before all the writing-on-the internet stuff, I was a book editor. With Amanda Hesser, I co-wrote the chapter "Food and Journalism" in the 2012 Routledge International Handbook of Food Studies. You can find my writing in Saveur, New York Magazine, the Hairpin, the Huffington Post, Food Fanatics, and on numerous sites where I've guest-blogged or generally dropped in my opinions. In the time since I've been helming Saveur.com, the site has won a lot of awards, which is a pretty nice feeling.
Besides writing and editing, I also take pictures and shoot videos. My photography has appeared in publications like NYMag.com, Saveur.com, and in the pages of Saveur magazine. I've shot video for Saveur, which you can find on the magazine's website, or on my Vimeo page.
Someone once called me "cranky but kindhearted," which I think is pretty on-point as far as my true self goes.
