Susan Faludi reviewed SHE SAID, starting with a fair question: why would anyone want to read one more word about Harvey Weinstein? We're honored and thrilled by her answers, which go far beyond me, @mega2e, or Weinstein. nyti.ms/2lECLQL

Definitely worried about burnout among student journalists. Running a school paper is so crushing that we're losing some of our best prospects before they fully enter the business. Hope you stick with it, @madelinellis bit.ly/3pffiTf

I’m thrilled to announce this new fellowship with my dear friends @19thnews. I have not supported newsroom fellowships before, but this once geared towards HBCUs should set the standard for all other such efforts. This is how we build as we climb. Shouts to @emarvelous @eramshaw
The 19th is thrilled to announce the creation of a groundbreaking journalism fellowship program for graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. 🎓 19thne.ws/fellowship

I anticipate the Dear Sugar newsletter the way I looked forward to the arrival of Sassy issues in my New Jersey mailbox c. 1989. Lifeline.
And here's the Dear Sugar Letter I'm referring to, in case you're interested. (Written for subscribers, but I unlocked it for all to read for free.) cherylstrayed.substack.com/p…

Today @mega2e and I are publishing an unusual book, intended to reach a particular group of young people. Perhaps you’d consider helping us. (🧵)

Something special is going on right now with students and journalism. So many young people are interested in bringing secrets to light, challenging authority, and doing stories that can make a difference.

College and high school newspapers are carrying more weight than ever. As local papers collapse, student publications are becoming primary news sources-- in many cases, forging ahead with low budgets, no pay, minimal support, etc. Heroic and extremely hard.

And going into journalism can be intimidating, especially for anyone who isn’t already well-connected. We want a certain kind of kid-- curious, omnivorous-- to feel welcome in this profession.

So we made a book for them, called Chasing the Truth. It’s an adaptation of She Said, which takes readers behind the scenes of the Weinstein investigation. Together with @ruby_shamir and @philomelbooks, we re-engineered the whole thing to be a kind of invitation into journalism.

There are sketches of how we got started, guidance on tradecraft, and a message of: yes, you can do this too.

Or maybe some readers of this book will become sources one day. The number of women who initially came forward about Weinstein was so tiny— yet look at their ultimate impact.

We’d love your help getting Chasing the Truth into the right hands. If you’d share with teenagers, educators (including English teachers), student journalists or their advisors, or just RT, we’d be so grateful. Thank you. bit.ly/3HtjAi8

Twilight, Central Park, falling leaves, thousands of New Yorkers gathered to cheer and clap the regular-people runners into the final mile of the race. In other words, heaven.

This is for today’s NYC runners, but truly, we’ve all been through a marathon.
