  • Feature on Rubio: Great lede on this feature article, and I loved the way you framed the assemblywoman’s uniqueness and goals. You also had perspectives from several other people, which I think is always crucial in a profile like this. 

  • Feature on Ritacca: This is a superb profile of an interesting professor. Great job getting a wide range of quotes from others to round out what she’s like. Very good job.

  • Opinion Hollywood diversity: Superb opinion piece here. Sharply written, doesn’t waste time or words in making its point, and is supported with strong evidence and explanations of why the problem exists. It also, crucially, highlights a solution to the identified problem. Very well done.

  • News story pandemic: This is good news writing. A solidly written piece, broad sourcing, some depth about vulnerable populations and concerns about vaccination proof.
