Author Tracking

I looked up another writer on The New Yorker, because I thought it would be better to get the most out of the venue I’m most familiar with before branching out. Evan Osnos focuses on politics for the magazine. I read his extensive report based on his visit to North Korea as well as his conversations with some of their government officials, and he seemed to further share his knowledge about the topic with several following articles. Having joined the magazine in 2008, he is invested in foreign affairs: he devoted four years in China to a report, and he first released his book about China through the magazine. He provided me with an example of a freelance writer who does a lot of on-the-field research, travels a lot, writes ‘reports’ that are more narrative and personal than academic journals and longer than daily newspapers, writes his own book, and still has a career with a renowned institution.
