Writers Remember the East Village Other


If you’re not old enough to remember New York alternative journalism in the 1960′s and early 70′s, don’t claim to be of age, or just weren’t around the city then, that’s okay.

In celebration of the spirit of the times and an accompanying popular underground newspaper, The East Village Other (EVO), the Local East Village, a New York Times community web site run in collaboration with New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, is publishing essays by former EVO writers and editors as well as those in their sphere. The pieces recall the days—and nights—at the paper as well as life in the iconic neighborhood during its run. Contributors include: Ishmael Reed, Dan Rattiner, Claudia Dreifus, Ed Sanders, and Coca Crystal, among others.

The essays appear in conjunction with the forthcoming “BLOWING MINDS: The East Village Other, the Rise of Underground Comix, and the Alternative Press, 1965-1972,” an exhibition which runs from Feb. 29 – March 16 at the Carter Journalism Institute.

NYU Carter Journalism Institute To Reward Coverage Of Underreported Topics

NYU’s journalism program is on the lookout for reporters with an eye for stories that often go unnoticed in today’s media.  According to an NYU press release, The Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is encouraging increased awareness for “underreported subjects of public interest” with their presentation of The Reporting Award.

The Reporting Award debuted in 2009 as an initiative to inspire young journalists to cover bold issues that are frequently overlooked due to staff and budget limitations within news outlets.  Yale alum Sarah Stillman received last year’s award for her work in Iraq and Afghanistan where she uncovered the hardships civilian workers face on American military bases.

The competition winner will receive a $2,500 stipend and an additional $10,000 upon completion and approval of their work.  Applications are due on Jan. 15 and the award recipient will be announced on Mar. 1.  For more information on NYU Carter Journalism Institute’s Reporting Award log on to the competition’s official site.
