Winning a 1st place Keystone Award for Feature Writing — The Story I Fought to Write

I was honored to be named the winner of a Keystone Award for Feature Writing The Keystones go the best of Pennsylvania journalism. My article, which was published in City Paper in May, told the story of the unlikely friendship between a woman who lost her son to violence and one of the men responsible for the death.

Interesting side note: I talked to more than one publication about writing this but none would give me room to really tell the story. City Paper gave me the space I wanted without question. But i joked that I lost money on this, given the time it took to write and report and taking one of the subjects out to lunch.

Still, it was worth it.

City Paper acknowledged my award and the many others it claimed here. Philebrity had a nice acknowledgement here.
