About


Steve Korver is an Amsterdam-based freelance writer/editor.

After years of travel subsidised by carpentry and B-movie acting, he first came to Amsterdam in 1992 to reverse the journey his parents made as immigrants to Canada. He settled down to become a freelance columnist, copywriter, editor/writer of guide books, and contributor to such publications as New York Times, Guardian, Time Out, McSweeney’s Quarterly, Conde Nast Traveller and The Globe & Mail covering such subjects as food/drink, design/architecture, Yuri Gagarin, Serbian gangster kitsch and all-things-Amsterdam.

From 2005 he was Editor-in-Chief of the alternative weekly Amsterdam Weekly for 175 issues and 14 European Newspaper Awards. Attracted to the idea of more varying deadlines, he decided to return to his freelancing roots in 2009. For the past four years, he has been googling sex almost every morning as research for his weekly column ‘Sex in the Press’ for the award-winning global platform Love Matters.
