As a teacher of writing, it’s important for me to write, too. Most of my recent work, linked below, is either commentary on journalism and journalism education based on my practice and research, or deadline sports coverage. I’ve also linked a variety of my work over the years at these pages: on sports, on people and places, on Penn State and on journalism and education.
