A Conversation With Henry Allen: Pulitzer Prize Winner, Artist, Renaissance Man

Tara Taghizadeh

In this day and age, there are few writers and journalists who fit the mold of the true literary great.  There is Hendrik Hertzberg of the New Yorker ; Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times;  Louis Menand (also of the New Yorker); and Henry Allen, the Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist, formerly of the Washington Post. God, Allen can write. For a number of young Washington-area journalists of my generation who had our eyes on the Washington Post at the start of our careers, Henry Allen’s writings represented what we hoped to achieve: the ability to craft elegant, refined, effortless prose and to present every subject matter (even the most mundane) as important and interesting.


The Art of Will Winton

Will Winton

I was originally trained as an architect, but abandoned the career to pursue other interests. Architecture school, however, provided sound training in the fundamentals of drawing and design, which have served me well as I pursue an artistic career. Shunning the current tired artistic trend of re-tread conceptualism, I seek to simply create unique works of beauty.
