Greetings, visitor. Welcome to the web site of Hank Nuwer. I am married to Malgorzata Wroblewska-Nuwer
On August 30, 2021, I was pleased to be named First Place Columnist and Best of Show in the state of Ohio. Judging was by Society of Professional Journalist peers. The division judged columnists at 60,000 and under circulation.
I am an independent journalist who writes from Indiana and, occasionally, Poland and Alaska. I write about social justice issues in education and the penitentiary system. I write about solutions to social problems such as hazing worldwide, and lately, gang and guard hazing in prisons worldwide. But I also write long-form journalism features and profiles for magazines, plus occasional newspaper columns.
For many years, I wrote sports features for The Saturday Evening Post, Inside Sports, Sport and Men’s Fitness. I played baseball in Buffalo Muni semipro and magazine assignments with the Denver Bears and Indianapolis Clowns.
I also interviewed tons of authors and continue to do so. The next publication is an interview with Stuart Gordon coming out early in 2022. The interviews often get republished in books of interviews. These include Kurt Vonnegut, David Mamet, Maurice Sendak, James Dickey, Jim Harrison, etc.
I pen creative nonfiction and short fiction for literary magazines such as
Limberlost Review, South Carolina Review and South Dakota Review. My last novel is Sons of the Dawn.
I’m married to a smart, savvy lady named Malgorzata. She holds a master’s degree in accounting. She is the mother of Natalia Wroblewska, a Ph.D. from Trinity College, Cambridge, employed by the World Health Organization.
That’s “Gosia” below in July 2021 as we walk the streets of Charleston in search of seafood.
What else can I tell you? I’m now a Franklin College emeritus professor.
That’s more than enough about me.
Briefly, I am an ordinary guy blessed to write and particularly enjoy investigative journalism. Writing sustains my energies. I am a member of IRE and SPJ.
Drop a line sometime and tell me about you. Why did you visit my site? Did you find what you needed?
Thanks for visiting.
