“For me, as for generations of young writers, the Daily was an extraordinary classroom. We weren’t just learning the basic rules of journalism, about focus and fairness and getting the facts straight; we got to test our skills on a fascinating range of subjects. … The Daily may only exist for two months of the year, but I know its influence on the lives of a great many writers extends far beyond that.”
