“How Did You Get Here?” Narrative Journalism Project Returns

The “How Did You Get Here?” project is back. Each year for the past few years, four students have been selected to be Fellows in Narrative Journalism for which they interview other Middlebury students about their lives leading up to arriving at Midd and then edit the interviews into audio vignettes. One such vignette that I did last year on Sopheak Chheng ‘11.5 can be watched below, and you can visit the Middlebury Magazine website to see the rest of the videos from last year (finally).

An application to do it this year was sent out earlier this week in an all-campus email.  The deadline to send in your application is this Sunday, September 18th.


One thought on ““How Did You Get Here?” Narrative Journalism Project Returns

  1. I’d like to see a new question this year for the narrative fellows. The success of the series so far is great and has inspired some rivals to look at personal voice in new ways: http://web.williams.edu/home/iamwilliams/index.php

    I’d like to see something that engages the community directly in specific issues and doesn’t shy away hard questions. Doing so through deep, media-rich narrative could be very powerful. And it’s the introspection that will show outsiders, prospective students how confident we are in our communtiy.
