I’m Hannah Covington, a journalist who specializes in Oxford comma code-switching. I recently started my first post-grad gig as a reporter at the Star Tribune, where I’m covering the north metro. In grad school, I studied English literature at the University of Tulsa. In a nut shell: I read books, drafted term papers, and taught composition courses [with the O. comma].
During summer breaks, I ditched flowery diction, interned at newspapers and looted metaphors from the authors I’ve studied in school [sans comma].Most recently, I was a metro intern in marvelous Minneapolis at the Star Tribune. I’ve also worked as a breaking news reporter at The Oklahoman in Oklahoma City and as a general assignment reporter at Tulsa World. In the spring of 2014, I interned with Oklahoma Journalists for Justice (OKJ2), a new non-profit that investigates possible wrongful convictions of men and women imprisoned in Oklahoma.
All my love to Virginia Woolf, Mina Loy, Anna Kavan and Pablo Neruda.
