Contributing editor at New York Magazine
Benjamin Wallace-Wells is a contributing writer at New York Magazine. Previously, he was a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine and at at Rolling Stone. He has worked as a reporter on the Philadelphia Inquirer's Metro Desk. His writing has been published in the Boston Globe, The New Republic, Policy Review, and in the collection At Ground Zero, among other places. His first professional piece, for the Boston Herald's online edition, followed a group of apprentice ticket-scalpers around Fenway Park on Opening Day. He was paid $30 for that article, and still considers this a pretty good rate. He was an editor of the Washington Monthly from 2003 to 2006.
