photoRosemary Counter is a Toronto-based writer and reviewer (and sometimes-editor). Since graduating from the University of Toronto with degrees in English and Women’s Studies, and a victory lap at Ryerson University in Publishing, Rosemary’s been all freelance, all the time.

Her work has appeared in everything from Maclean’s to Elle, Canadian Living to Reader’s Digest, Style at Home to The New Yorker. She also pops up in Chatelaine, Today’s Parent, Cottage Life and Canadian Business, as well as The Toronto Star, The Globe & Mail, The National Post, The Toronto Sun and The New York Times.

When she’s not doing, she’s teaching, at Ryerson University’s Chang School of Continuing Eduction. Her class, The Art of Pitching, is a new addition to the journalism program, after she pitched it.

And in between deadlines, she wrote The Decadent Housewife, a sassy lifestyle guide to idleness and luxury that’s nothing like her own life, she swears. If you’d like to know more, Rosemary will tell you anything you want to hear—for a dollar a word.
