Maynard Grad, Partner Selected for Knight Fellowship at Stanford
May 2, 2012
2011 Media Academy grad Latoya Peterson and Chauncey Bailey Project partner Kevin Weston have been chosen to participate in the Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University.
"I am so grateful to mentors like Dori Maynard, Doug Mitchell, Jenny 8. Lee, James Wright, and Irving Washington who encouraged me to apply, assuaged my fears, and tirelessly read and re-read my essays. I couldn't have done it without their support," said Latoya Peterson.
"Auntie Dori Maynard is one of my role models and the Maynard Institute is an inspiration. She has inspired and assisted so many people like me in journalism; whatever we accomplish is in no small part due to her pioneering work in our support and development," said Kevin Weston.
Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
