Handwritten lettering saying "Drawn Journalism"

A field she has helped developed and now teaches, Drawn Journalism blends practices of drawing, journalism and social work into a unique approach to storytelling. Wendy's process centers the subject and engages the reader in ways text and photography cannot, conveying human stories in a uniquely compelling and powerful way. Wendy started publishing long-form stories in The Rumpus in 2010 and went on to become The New York Times first every weekly visual columnist. She was the first artist The New York Times sent to draw in Guantanamo Bay. Wendy regularly speaks and teaches workshops on Drawn Journalism, and advocates for its inclusion in art and journalism school curriculums.
