Jeanne Schinto

From 1998 to 2004, Schinto wrote feature profiles (10,000 to 20,000 words) for the Reader about a neurologist, a marine artist, an orchestra conductor, and an experimental composer, and pieces of the same length about computer hackers, audiophiles, 3-D photographers, World War II POWs, and birders.

For her short (1000-word), weekly column, which she produced for four and a half years, she interviewed people from Edward O. Wilson and Tammy Fay Bakker to Tony Hawk and Edward Gorey’s literary executor, Andreas Brown, as well as lesser-knowns, from graphic novelists to Australian Rules footballers to residents of a Zen Buddhist monastery. The territory ranged from the northernmost point of San Diego County down to Tijuana.
