JACKSON, Tenn. – Dec. 11, 2012– Union University journalism professor Julia Duin won three awards from the Religion Newswriters Association this fall for her writing in The Washington Post Magazine.
Duin, who came to Union this semester from the Washington Post, won third place in the “Religion Reporter of the Year” category for large newspapers and wire services. She also took second place in the “Supple Religion Feature Writer of the Year” and “Magazine News Religion Report of the Year” categories.
“This was a personal record for me,” Duin said of her awards. “Most folks didn’t know I’d moved to Union, so I used one of my acceptance speeches to say I had relocated to Tennessee to teach here.”
