Writing samples

I know they’re in here somewhere … gimme a few minutes.

After CNN, I worked on video and other social media verification, finding the story, the source, the image, the video from the cacophony of Twitter, Facebook and the like. It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.

All of that work is behind a firewall, for clients only. But since leaving there, I’ve been writing features. Here’s the most recent, for Smoky Mountain Living magazine. There’s more coming, but they’ve not yet been published.

Here’s a couple of actual news stories from my days at CNN:

Here’s three feature stories from my time as staff writer for a weekly newspaper in the early-1990s. They’re in pdf format. Enjoy.

  • Postcards from Camp (about the tribulations of operating a lesbian camp in very rural Mississippi)
  • Common Bond (two lesbians survive a massive flood in rural Georgia with the help of their neighbors)
  • Gay in Hutsville (a gay homeless community. I share a byline on this story, but in reality I wrote it — Liz gathered the information)
