Story
Introduction

Michele Weldon is an assistant professor of journalism at Northwestern University's Medill School, where she received her BSJ and MSJ. She teaches at the undergraduate and graduate levels courses in multimedia storytelling, reporting and writing. Weldon is the author of three nonfiction books, plus an upcoming fourth, and she has been a featured guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, where she never looked better thanks to the hair and makeup crew. She speaks around the country on issues related to violence against women, and all things journalism, media and writing. The owner of Writing to Save Your Life Workshops offered around the country, Weldon is the mother of three sons, 21, 19 and 16, all of whom were/are high school wrestlers and all of whom can cook even if they can't clean up. She spends much time watching her sons compete, revising their papers, driving to and from work, writing, brainstorming and whenever she can, laughing with her fabulous five brothers and sisters and other good friends. Oh, yes, and she cannot resist a marvelous pair of shoes.
