Dana James is a professional journalist who brings other unique experiences to her writing. She's an entrepreneur, and turned to blogging when she felt stories of Black Iowans were not being covered adequately in mainstream news sources. I look forward to her writing eagerly!
I cannot wait to read what Mary is going to share with us. She will be sharing her life, both past and present, in a way that will make you pause, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and reread her work. My hunch is she'll use Substack tools to bring her interst in music, the arts, and sustainable agriculture to you in new ways. She has much to say about her teaching career at ISU, and I'll bet the Iowa Poet Laureate will teach us a thing or two. Oh, and she's funny. Subscribe!
Laura Belin is one of the smartest people I've ever met. She covers Iowa politics with the energy of three reporters. And her analysis is beyond compare. If you want to know about what is going on under the gold dome, subscribe to Laura. And become a paid subscriber. She is a mission-driven journalist who needs our support.
