About the Event

Telling  the stories of the modern American South can be complicated,  compelling, and heartwarming - often all at the same time.  Publisher  Eric NeSmith will talk about how the Bitter Southerner approaches its  mission and how the publication sustains its storytelling by utilizing a  unique business model.

Location:  CLE Lecture Hall

Presenter:  Eric NeSmith comes from a long line of storytellers, but community journalism has been his passion since childhood,  seeping into his veins through his fingertips as he inserted the  sections of his hometown paper together at 8 years old.  His career in  journalism has spanned reporting, photography, marketing,  editing, and publishing.  He is the publisher and CEO of The Bitter  Southerner, an independent publishing company known for stories that  paint a broad, more complex picture of the American South.
