IowaWatch’s Lauren Mills Recognized for Research Presentation

A research poster about IowaWatch and non-profit journalism has been recognized as an “Outstanding Poster Presentation” by judges at 7th Annual Spring Undergraduate Research Festival at the University of Iowa.
Lauren Mills, a reporter and the assistant editor-designate of IowaWatch, prepared the poster for presentation during a three-hour program at the Iowa Memorial Union last Saturday.

From the editor: Fixing our mistakes

Dear Friends of IowaWatch:

As those of you who have followed our adventure into the wilds of the non-profit journalism movement may know, last week was one we would like to forget. Our editing system – the one I created – failed. We published some fact errors, including a serious misquote. Now, we want to do something about that, and I want your help. The errors appeared in a major explanatory project of vital importance to the public, which means more is at stake here than IowaWatch’s wounded ego.
