I’m Rowan Walrath, and I love local and long-form journalism. I have a strong background in community reporting, including breaking news, crime reporting, event coverage, and environmental news. My bylines include the Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, the Dorchester Reporter, WGBH News, Storybench, and the Huntington News. Alongside writing and editing, I do multimedia stuff — web design, the occasional video, and journalism-focused hackathons. I'm also weirdly into research. My underlying interests lie in education and community. For me, journalism is kind of an in-the-moment research opportunity. Saying “I’m Rowan, a reporter with XYZ Publication” is a great way to gather information from people. Right now, I’m focusing on local reporting in the Boston area, anticipating a move to San Francisco (!) in January.
