Emily Richmond

Whatever your needs, Emily Richmond will be there to help.

  • You’re on deadline, and you want to know if the new report that plopped on your desk comes from an organization with an agenda.
  • You have a simple question you want answered fast, or a complex project you want to talk through.
  • You’re new to the beat and having trouble getting officials, or middle schoolers, to talk to you.
  • Or you’ve been on the beat forever and are dying for a new take on the snow-day story, the budget-rollout story, or the perennial story about college-admissions angst.

If you need to workshop a story idea, contact Emily. The service is free and confidential.
