Journalism | Writing

No #fakenews Here.

I’ve always loved to write. And by writing I also mean digging, interviewing people, getting to know them and their lives, making sense of what’s learned, and “putting it down on paper.” We live in a visual society, but there’s still nothing more powerful than words.

Nothing more powerful than words. No where is this sense of responsibility felt than writing for a newspaper. There was no #fakenews then. We worked our asses off to dig, learn, and tell stories as accurately and honestly as possible. Still do.

Corporate writing can be stiff and impersonal, with words and phrases like “synergy” and “making the world a better place.” There are rich stories here, too. You have to recognize and not be afraid to tell in a more expressive way.
