    Robert Kolker at Mass Comm Week Rey Leanos Jr.

Robert Kolker, investigative journalist, writer for New York magazine and author of “Lost Girls” was a guest speaker at the 2013 Texas State University Mass Communication week.

Kolker discussed elements of visual storytelling and talked about his experience at New York Magazine and dove into detail about the construction of his book and why he decided to write about it. He also provided advice to aspiring journalists…

-Robert Kolker

Kolker also attended a lunch, where a few Texas State students were able to attend and have one on one time with him to discuss whatever they pleased. For More information on Mass Comm week events you can visit
