As a senior editor, Amanda Heckert writes and edits features and service packages and contributes to other sections of the magazine, such as Agenda and Arbiter. Since arriving at Atlanta as an associate editor in 2006, Heckert has covered topics ranging from style and religion to city landmark preservation and Dasani bottled water. But for better or for worse, Heckert is a pop culture nut, and much of her writing trends toward that theme, including stories on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the city’s burgeoning film scene, and TBS. Previously an associate editor at Newcomer magazine, Heckert graduated from the Honors College at the University of South Carolina. Her first foray into journalism was in the fifth grade when she typed up a newsletter chronicling a class field trip, complete with cartoon and a thrilling account of a lunch at a Japanese steakhouse.
