CAMP 2017: Introducing this year’s fellowship class

A young journalist who covered the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub last year and played a big part in the team that has continued to examine the attack. A magazine editor looking into launching a podcast about women, writing, working, and persisting in their 20s. A veteran reporter who has focused on highlighting first-generation and non-traditional college students as well as transgender Americans living in Texas. These are just a few of the inspiring women who have recognized as 2017 JAWS fellows and will be attending the Conference and Mentoring Project in Hot Springs, Ark., in October.
