The Cox Institute’s NewsCraft 20 will be held this year in Studio 100 on Friday, Feb. 7 with the theme “Covering Culture.” We have four great speakers on board: Lori Johnston (ABJ ’95, MFA ’17) (Religion), Nick Chiles (Celebrity), Tanya Sichynsky (ABJ ’14) (Food) and Laura James (ABJ ’15) (Lifestyle). The sessions are set to coincide with class times – all are welcome.
Lori’s articles on religion have been published in the Washington Post, Nick is collaborating on a book with Jamie Foxx, Tanya won the Association of Food Journalists award for best food column last year and Laura was recently promoted to commerce editor with HGTV.com and TravelChannel.com. It’s a stellar group who will provide our students with great insights about the many facets of culture journalism.
