I’m happy to introduce a change in my blog.  At a time when some media are pulling back from in-depth, enterprise and narrative writing, reporters at the Connecticut Post have been producing some amazing work which I will post here. We ask you to join us in this endeavor, helping us to post other quality work you’ve read elsewhere that moved you. This blog is for those who enjoy a deeper look at an issue, a compelling tale, a story that challenges and asks you to think more deeply about an issue. And  It’s for writers and journalists who want support for their work, a place to share their work and a place to promote the long form on the web.
