CJR: "Unsettled" is "a masterclass on serialization"
"Unsettled", my 29 part series currently running in the Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram, continues today, with one tribal attorney cast out and a new one on the case.
Yesterday, the Columbia Journalism Review featured the series, calling it "a startling story of injustice and
defiance and a mastercalss on serialization." They also gave us the opportunity to explain why we think such a series fits so well with a daily newspaper's mission, and how we went about illustrating it. Thanks to CJR for their interest.
Also yesterday, the leading Native American news hub, the Indian Country Today Media Network, carried this plug for "Unsettled."
You can find all of "Unsettled" as it appears on this landing page. And again, no, there's no plan yet to release it as a book, although if everyone keeps asking we may have to make one.
