In 2009, he launched The Groton Line, a hyperlocal news site to fill the gap left by retreating daily and weekly papers. He has an MS in Journalism; did post-grad work at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies; and has years of news, magazine, and high tech writing and publishing experience.

Sarah Connell Campbell - Writer
E-mail me at [email protected]
A native Iowan and the youngest of 11 children, I've lived in Groton for 20 years. My children attend public and charter schools. I am a writer and editor with a background in university administration and policy, grass-roots politics and advocacy, K-12 education with an emphasis on special education with specific experience in developmental disorders, mental health, and autism spectrum disorders. And, although The Groton Line is well-staffed with Campbells, I'm not related to either Art or Betsy. Visit my blog at http://Lettershead.com!
Gail Somers Sun - Writer
Gail Somers Sun enjoys writing about Groton and its citizens. Getting to know interesting people who do interesting things, be it farming, building guitars, creating a work of art, is a pleasant way of passing time. Writing about them is a chance to reflect on each one's uniqueness and commonality, to pause, get outside of oneself and think about others.
