Cross-posted from cpijournalism.org: I worked up this list of journalism fellowships earlier this week for the Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University:
I’m starting this week very happy to find myself listed among some of my favorite people, nominated for the inaugural 2013 Pen and Pencil Club Philadelphia News Awards, celebrating and recognizing “the best journalism that this city has to offer.”
Unabashed endorsements: I respect and admire a lot of my colleagues on the list, but I especially hope you will take a minute to vote for:
- Kathy Matheson: Breaking News nominee from AP — and love of my life, and..
- Joe Kaczmarek: Multimedia nominee — and my co-founding partner at the Gun Crisis Reporting Project.
Vote early and often. It’s Philadlephia after all:

Anne Tucker, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, curated “War/Photography,” which went from Houston to LA to the Corcoran in Washington, and will head to the Brooklyn Museum in November. It covers 165 years of war photography and was put together over the past ten years.
The class will meet at 6:30 in Room 301 in the Main Building at Drexel, at 3141 Chestnut Street.
