The Addison Independent

I spent the summer of 2017 as an intern at The Addison Independent,  where I worked full-time as a reporter covering the 23 towns of Addison County, Vermont. The paper publishes twice a week, and was named New England’s best non-daily in 2016. All articles written can be found below. My archive on their website can be found here. My best clips can be found here.
