Saffron Howden


Saffron Howden has been a journalist for over 15 years. She started as a cadet reporter at Australian Associated Press (AAP) in Sydney and was sent to work in the federal parliamentary press gallery at Parliament House in Canberra not long after completing her cadetship.

She returned to Sydney two years later and began working at the Daily Telegraph. Before joining the journalism staff at the Sydney Morning Herald, Saffron worked at the regional daily newspaper, the Northern Star, on the north coast of NSW.

She spent six years at the Herald before starting Australia’s only national newspaper for kids, Crinkling News. She is a mother, aunty and avid reader.
