More good news!

I am very happy to announce that I have been selected as a 2015/16 Fellow at the Reynolds Journalism Institute, focused on the evaluation of structured narratives as a new framework for journalism using the Structured Stories platform. The fellowship will give me access to the deep academic and practical expertise of RJI and the wider Missouri School of Journalism community, and will help ensure that structured narrative gets wider exposure and a thorough evaluation as a possible new medium for journalism.

The timing for the fellowship could not be better. Reporting into the Structured Stories platform will begin soon, and evaluating news consumption using the accumulated reporting will be greatly aided by the involvement of experienced journalism researchers.

The RJI fellowship is non-residential. I will remain in Los Angeles for the duration and will travel frequently to RJI in Columbia, Missouri.
