Tullis participates in Nieman Storyboard post

This week, Nieman Storyboard, a project of the NiemanFoundation for Journalism at Harvard University, has been publishing reading lists from some of the top narrative journalism professors in the country.

Today, Matt Tullis, associate professor in the Department of Journalism and Digital Media at Ashland University and host of Gangrey: ThePodcast, was included in Nieman Storyboard’s post. Tullis also serves as the adviser to The Collegian.

Other faculty members who were asked to give examples of what their students were reading are teaching at places like ColumbiaUniversity’s Graduate School of Journalism, the Indiana University School of Journalism, and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.  

Tullis, whose JDM 407 Narrative Journalism is being taught on Wednesday nights this semester, has arranged to have nationally-prominent magazine writers Skype into class every week. Students are reading stories by those reporters and then get the chance to talk with them and ask them questions for up to an hour each Wednesday.

So far, the class has spoken with Mike Sager, who writes for Esquire and has a long and storied career as a narrative journalist and novelist, and Michael Kruse of the Tampa Bay Times. Throughout the rest of the semester, students will get to talk with reporters from Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, Sports Illustrated, ESPN: The Magazine, New York, and Vanity Fair, among others.
