ProPublica and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Win National Magazine Award for Feature Writing

The American Society of Magazine Editors announced Tuesday that a collaboration between ProPublica and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel won the 2023 National Magazine Award for Feature Writing.

"The Landlord & The Tenant," by ProPublica reporter Ken Armstrong and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Raquel Rutledge, describes in searing detail two systems of justice — one for wealthy property owners and another for impoverished renters — that intersect in a devastating house fire outside of Milwaukee. Using the present tense, plain-spoken English and powerfully vivid writing, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters Rutledge and Armstrong propel readers through an epic saga collaged together using evocative scenes and compelling evidence. The result is a Dickensian portrait of the rich and poor in an average American city today.
