Tim Gillman has been a writing instructor in the School of Communication and Media since Fall 2012.
Gillman was a staff reporter for the Atlantic City (N.J.) Press, Los Angeles Times and Long Beach (Calif.) Press-Telegram.
He has also written for online sites and publications as diverse as Sports Illustrated, WebMD, the Chicago Tribune, patch.com and Canoe & Kayak magazine.
Gillman earned a master’s degree in journalism from Michigan State University while he was sports editor for the Newhouse chain of newspapers in Michigan. He also taught news writing to MSU undergraduates.
His master’s thesis about the readability of media stories was authoritative enough to be published in Newspaper Research Journal, a juried academic journal.
