Hi there. You’ve reached the online portfolio of writer and editor Jennifer Wehunt. As an editor, she—OK, me—is a misplaced comma’s worst nightmare. As a writer, I’m interested in stories of how, in an age of climate change, people shape the places they live and vice versa.
I’m currently the digital editor for FRONTLINE, PBS’s flagship documentary series. I’ve previously worked as the editorial director of the Appalachian Mountain Club, the nation’s oldest conservation and recreation organization, overseeing a quarterly magazine, digital-first content, a robust books catalog, and a semiannual journal. Rewind further, and I was a senior editor at Chicago magazine and an adjunct faculty member at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
As a writer, I’ve won one City & Regional Magazine Award, among a few noms; my AMC team won a National Outdoor Book Award and lots of Excel Awards from Association & Media Publishing; and my writing on food access was cited by the Illinois Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and included in Food: A Reader for Writers from Oxford University Press—just below Michael Pollan in the table of contents. Woot!
Let’s cook up an award-winning project together: wehunt wolff at gmail dot com.
