Joyce Dehli is a longtime journalist who, as a senior news executive, helped lead a major newspaper company's journalists through the past decade of great upheaval and innovation. She left her position as vice president for news at Lee Enterprises last year to return to writing. She has served on the Pulitzer Prize Board since 2008. She was an Ethics Fellow at the Poynter Institute, a global leader in training for professional journalists. Ethical decision-making in journalism and its consequences for democracy and social justice have been central interests in her career as a reporter, editor, and news executive. During the fellowship year, Dehli will explore the ways in which stories and storytelling, across fiction and nonfiction genres, influence how people emerge into both individuals and participants in a democracy and whether they see themselves as insiders or outsiders.
