General Feature


Arizona Highways, “Across the Great Divide” by Annette McGivney

An amazing beautiful story, rich in detail and narrative. The author forgets nothing in her story, recounting the unimaginable difficulties encountered in first constructing the pipeline, the heartbreak of its early washout, its importance to the Grand Canyon ecosystem (tourist and otherwise) and the perils of failing to upgrade… it’s all here. And even if you know nothing about the Grand Canyon or the water that feeds it, you will be intrigued by this story.


Adirondack Life, “High Profile” by Annie Stoltie

A beautiful example of how to take a commonplace object that people might walk past a hundred times in their life but never really stop to see, and elevate to an object of historical reverence. Nice depth of research as well.


Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, “Riding Giants” by Paul Molyneaux

Vivid and engaging. Great subject. A tight, simple story told very well.
