Phoebe Zerwick (Editor)
I am an associate professor of the practice in the English Department at Wake Forest University, where I teach journalism and writing. I came to teaching after more than 20 years as a working journalist, mostly at the Winston-Salem Journal, where I was a reporter, columnist and editor. I have always been drawn to human stories and to the role journalism plays in defining and creating community. Heard It Here is a regular news report produced by students in my community journalism class. I serve as editor, but the work you see is the work of my students. Feel free to email or call me with story ideas and comments. I want to hear from you when we get it right and when we don’t. You may reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my cell at 336-682-2249. Website
Hi there! My name is Katherine Laws. As a junior at Wake Forest University, you likely can find me sitting on the Quad watching a sunset, talking with and taking pictures of friends, or in my classes as I study English and Journalism. I am a tour guide at Wake (I’m a big Deacs fan!) and a member of Traditions Council, both roles with a basis in storytelling. I love capturing the stories that every place and person has to tell, and I believe that doing so can bring radical change to both the story’s teller and the hearer. This class in particular is important to me because of my belief in the importance of growing deep and meaningful roots in the place you live, whether you are there for four years or for your whole life—because loving a place, and acting on that love, is the only way to make it better. If you have thoughts, concerns, questions, or ideas, I would love to hear from you! You can email me at email@example.com or call me at 980-621-4770.
Hi! I’m a senior at Wake Forest with a major in English and a minor in Journalism. As such, I believe in the power of stories to open the world to us and to shape and transform our own lives. This includes the stories of great writers such as Jane Austen and William Faulkner (personal favorites of mine), but also the true stories of the people and events in our community. I love my hometown of Richmond, Virginia, my pug, and art in any and all forms. I’m looking forward to a semester spent exploring the different voices and narratives that make up Winston-Salem. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns through phone at 804-337-1893 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
