Rosalind Bentley

An award-winning writer, Rosalind Bentley has been a reporter at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for 13 years but began her career on the frozen tundra at the Minneapolis StarTribune. Her coverage has ranged from allegations of police brutality to the election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa, to arts and culture. Though proficient in stories of 140 characters — @rozrbentley on Twitter — she’s a practitioner of long-form narratives and her work has recently been anthologized in the book Best American Newspaper Narratives. She was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist for race coverage during her time on the tundra.
