I teach at multiple universities in New Jersey and am an award-winning journalist and educator. I am always willing to tackle new and unfamiliar territory.
When you read a story by Karyn D. Collins, you get journalism not only about Style in some cases, but written with style, with voice, with empathy. Stories I’ve produced in recent years include features, profiles, fashion coverage, including layouts in which I served as Style Editor. I’ve written arts and entertainment stories, and dance reviews.
My career includes stints covering municipal beats and education. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, the child of two educators and the granddaughter of journalist Enoch Waters, executive editor of the Chicago Defender.
