The alt-weekly glory days

The Pitch

From 2000-2010, I was editor of Kansas City's alt-weekly paper, The Pitch (these days it's an alt-monthly, and no longer owned by Village Voice Media as it was during those years). It was an honor and a blast to work with a staff of talented writers who won national awards, were published in Best American anthologies (music, food, sports) and went on to  write for national magazines


Before that, I spent a couple of years with an equally amazing group of journalists as managing editor of Denver's Westword


Before that, I wrote for earlier incarnations of alternative papers in Kansas City, back when the internet did not exist.
