Hi there. You’ve reached the online portfolio of editor, digital experimenter, and writer Jennifer Wehunt. As an editor, she—OK, me—is a misplaced comma’s worst nightmare. As a digital native, I like to try it out and see if it sticks. And as a writer, I’m interested in how, in an age of climate change, people shape the places they live and vice versa.
These days I’m the digital editor for FRONTLINE, the flagship PBS documentary series. Before that, I was editorial director of the Appalachian Mountain Club, the nation’s oldest conservation and recreation organization, overseeing a magazine, digital-first and adapted content, a robust books and maps imprint, and a journal. Rewind further, and I was an editor at Chicago magazine and adjunct faculty at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
I’ve won one City & Regional Magazine Award, among a few noms; my FRONTLINE team won the 2021 Webby for News & Politics website; 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. Spicy!
Let’s cook up an award-winning project together: wehunt wolff at gmail dot com.
