Sheppard Moves to Washington and The American Prospect
In September, former Ithacan columnist and Buzzsaw editor Kate Sheppard (journalism and politics, '06) moved to Washington, D.C., to take a writing fellowship at The American Prospect, where so far she has reported on climate and energy policy, immigration, the labor movement, and the 2008 election. In addition to writing for the print publication, she also writes for the magazine's website and award-winning blog, TAPPED. Before coming to the Prospect, Kate spent a year working at Grist magazine in Seattle, blogging and reporting for MSN's climate and energy site, and freelancing for various publications. She is currently preparing to head to Florida to cover the Republican primaries, where she's hoping to spend some quality time with Rudy Giuliani.
