Reblogged from my other blog.
Tim, the reporter
I had heard about Cville Tomorrow but didn’t really know much about it until I met Tim the other day. He was on the Downtown Mall to publicize their Kickstarter campaign, which represents their attempt to expand their news coverage of local events. At this point, they focus on growth and development issues, as well as local politics, and they’re hoping to add education news to their offerings. If they meet their fundraising goal, Tim will be the reporter covering that beat.
Tim has been on staff at Cville Tomorrow for a little while now, but he’s been a writer for a lot longer. After getting an undergraduate degree in English, he went on to get an MFA in Creative Writing. He’s a published poet, and he told me that his poetry is typically about the relationship between people and the land, so his reporting on land use issues dovetails nicely with his creative work. You can read some of his poetry here and here.Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA
