Clifford Teutsch Journalism Scholarship Established

Clifford Teutsch brought many fine qualities to his role as editor of The Hartford Courant, but none were greater than the integrity, humanity and humility he demonstrated as a journalist, news executive, and mentor.

In honor of the many ways he touched and inspired his fellow journalists and coworkers, a journalism scholarship is being established in his name at Manchester Community College.

On the Courant’s behalf, Publisher Nancy Meyer and Editor Andrew Julien are generously contributing $5,000 to the fund in Cliff’s memory.

Those wishing to make a memorial contribution of their own may do so at this address:

Thought current and former Courant folks might enjoy this news. Theresa Sullivan Barger has a story in this month’s issue of Family Circle – a first person account of her son’s Type I diabetes diagnosis. It comes on the heels of another story she had in the New York Times in July. Girlfriend is on fire.

Emergency! Writer Needed

Norine Schiller has received a plea from a friend who needs a writer fast:
Here is what he says:
I am trying to find writers for a series of books and am having trouble finding people for the subject matter. The series is on Dangerous Drugs and includes subjects such as anti-anxiety drugs.

Do you know anyone who might be willing to write such a book for middle schoolers? The word count for these titles is 8,000 and the pay is $1,500 (I can’t do anything about the fee).

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. The first one is due in December.

The hiring editor is Fletcher Doyle, Senior Editor at Cavendish Square Publishing, and his work email address is Anyone who contacts him should mention to him that they heard about this through Norine.

With gratitude and affection,
Patrice, Hannah, and Matt
