While looking through the 2017 Pulitzer Prize winners, we were especially heartened to see that the winner for “Distinguished Editorial Writing” went to a gentleman named Art Cullen… now, we don’t know Art personally, but we do know his paper has a circulation of 3,000.
The local newspaper for many (if not most smaller communities) is a window to the entire world. Seeing this award bestowed upon a person pushing journalism in his town of Storm Lake, IA (population 10,000) is absolutely amazing.
While we obviously commend every winner on the list, it’s great to see a writer of a publication similar to many of the ones we work with receive such a high honor. Brilliant and inspirational.
Thank you, newspapers.
