Award-winning writing

Victoria Metcalf took first place in the in-depth reporting category sponsored by the California News Publishers Association for her 2018 three-part series on the Keddie murders. “This was by far and away the most well-researched and well-sourced story in this category. Excited to see more from them,” read one judge’s comment. Metcalf interviewed a host of individuals and spent months collecting information before writing this in-depth piece on the 1981 murders that have been the subject of books, magazine articles and national news programs.
