2011 Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist
Amy Ellis Nutt
Ms. Nutt received the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing for her story, “The Wreck of the Lady Mary,” which investigated the mysterious sinking of a fishing boat off the New Jersey coast. In 2009, Ms. Nutt was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her article, “The Accidental Artist,” which explores the forging of a new sense of self by Jon Sarkin, a chiropractor who became transformed into a compulsive artist after suffering a massive brain injury. That article led to her widely acclaimed book, Shadows Bright as Glass.
Ms. Nutt, a reporter for the Star Ledger and adjunct professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, will discuss her work, the important role that good storytelling skills plays in our professional lives, and how women — who are naturally good at it — can get even better.
