Stephanie Zacharek has been writing regularly for Salon since January 1996 -- almost, but not quite, from its first issue. At that time she was a freelance writer, contributing articles on movies, pop music and books to numerous publications including Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Interview, the Village Voice and The Boston Phoenix. From 1990 to 1999 she also worked as a fulltime copy editor for Inc. magazine, which at the time was based in Boston. In 1999, she moved to New York and began working for Salon full-time, where she has been ever since. She is a member of the National Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Circle.
