An overdue update…
Arizmendi Q&A: Running a Business With 26 CEOs
In late January, I went to NYC as a Guggenheim Symposium Fellow via the John Jay College Center on Media, Crime and Justice, where I met a slew of amazing journalists and fascinating practitioners. As part of this fellowship, I’m putting a story together about probation for Miller-McCune magazine that’s slated to run in the May/June issue. John Jay also runs The Crime Report, and I have a story on the site this month.
And while we’re on the topic of what lies ahead, at a time where California public university tuition is reaching new highs, I’m working with investigative reporter Peter Byrne and Sacramento News & Review’s R.V. Scheide to look at where the University of California has chosen to make its financial investments. We’re funding this project via Spot.Us.
Later this month, I’ll be participating in a multimedia storytelling seminar via the Knight Digital Media Center for independent journalists—audio slideshows and digital mapping, here I come… And next week, I’m heading back to Los Angeles for Session 2 of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism.
For the California Endowment fellowship, I have a story in the works that looks at the intersection between parolee health, public health and public safety (yes, a topic I’ve been chipping away at for a while now), and I spent the day with a chronically ill parolee who was released from San Quentin at 7am last Monday. I’ll post a link to the story here, so y’all come back again soon, y’hear?
