Editor, The New York Times for Kids
Amber Williams edits a new monthly Times section that mimics a newspaper—with National, International, Science, Arts pages and more—but is written just for kids. She started at The Times in January 2017; she spent her first year leading a small team of editors and designers that pulled together the second and third pages of the paper. Before entering the newspaper world, she worked as an assigning editor at magazines including Scientific American and Popular Science. She's a graduate of the Science, Health and Environmental Reporting program at New York University, where she has returned several times to lead "how to pitch" workshops.
