Today’s featured journalist is Margaret Ely, web producer at The Washington Post. a proud Indiana University grad, Ely covers everything from community news and home decor but not metro news. Her portfolio includes: Kid's Room Contest: Nursery design and safety go hand-in-hand, Twitter reveals moments before deaths of two college students killed in train derailment, and City Arts helps D.C. church mark centennial with mural. This is her first journalism job but Ely already knows she prefers being pitched by e-mail and that aspiring journalists should “work harder than anybody else.”
Remember: if you also want to be featured here, you should a) set up your own own journalist portfolio and 2) let us know by emailing delia at muckrack dot com.
