Lane DeGregory is a listener, a writer, a teacher. She loves true stories, intimate details and big ideas. She interviews strangers and writes about real people, some famous, but mostly folks struggling in the shadows.
In 30 years, she has shared more than 3,000 stories in newspapers and magazines: A feral child who gets adopted, a teenage orphan begging for a family, a young girl whose dad dropped her off a bridge.
She has won dozens of national awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. And she hosts a journalism podcast: WriteLane.
