"You really don't need a blog." -- me, daily

An award-winning writer specializing in community-driven storytelling, Lora has written for The Atlantic, Washington City Paper, the PBS NewsHour, Marquette Magazine, BroadwayWorld.com, PhillyVoice, PoliticsPA.com, Philadelphia Neighborhoods, Army News Service, and more.  

Straddling the digital revolution and more traditional newsgathering, Lora’s editing skills center on finding ways to use new media -- from Instagram to Substack to short-form video -- to engage audiences in real-time, to serve communities often left out of traditional mainstream news, and to build more trusting relationships between the people and the Fourth Estate.
