Kenneth R. Rosen is an American journalist and author.

Early life and education

Rosen was born in New York City.[1] He attended middle school at Valley Forge Military Academy. He later moved to New Jersey and at sixteen was sent to tough love therapy programs for troubled teens in Massachusetts, Upstate New York and Utah.[2] He later attended Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey where he worked for the student newspaper The College VOICE[3] before transferring to the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). He attended the M.F.A. program at Columbia University where he briefly served as the editor-in-chief of Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art.[4]


Rosen joined the staff of The New York Times[5] as a news assistant while graduating from SCAD with a B.F.A. in writing in 2014.[6] He was part of the Times team awarded a Silurian Medallion award for breaking news coverage of the slaying of two NYPD police officers in 2015.[7][8][9]

Several publications have published his essays and reportage including New York Magazine, The Atlantic, the Village Voice, Tin House, The Rumpus, Narratively, Pacific Standard, Outside Magazine, Roads & Kingdoms, Creative Nonfiction, Guernica, USA Today, Vice, Nowhere Magazine and HuffPost.[10][11]

Awards and fellowships

During the Battle of Mosul, Rosen traveled to Iraq for Foreign Affairs and The Atavist Magazine. His resulting story on extrajudicial killings by Iraqi forces won the Bayeux-Calvados Awards for war correspondents[15], a Clarion Award, was a finalist for the Livingston Award and was recognized by The Atlantic, Longform, and The New York Times which called his reporting "a dark journey behind the Mosul front line where victory and defiance take precedent, and the treatment of the dead flies directly in the face of tradition."[16][17][18][19]

Rosen's essay "Notes From My Suicide" received a citation in the Best American Essays 2017 anthology.[20]

In 2017, he was a Logan Nonfiction Fellow and a visiting research scholar at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism.[21][22].
