Columbia College, The Loop, Chicago
Last night Scott and I were invited to speak at Columbia College. We were joined by Jessa Crispin of Bookslut fame. It was nice to finally meet her. The instructor was Rob Elder, who also writes for the Chicago Tribune, and the class was on reporting and writing. There were only about a dozen students, so it was fun and more like a conversation than a presentation. We talked about Chicagoist and how we write and run the site and also how to blog and write if you want to get noticed. Lots of fun.
