Reporting on Trauma

I’m still recuperating from exhaustion and a cold from my trip to Mexico. Hopefully I’ll have some new blog posts when I feel better. For now, you can read about the plenary session I led a few weeks ago at the School of Authentic Journalism. The session, “Talking about Death, Writing about Life” focused on interviewing people whose family members died violent deaths. Candice Vallantin, a student at the school, did an excellent write-up of the session, during which other experienced journalists and organizers contributed their thoughts and advice.
