Part 3 - Interview with Jan White, first place winner of 2006 Amy Award

Dianne: Tell us about your weekly column. How did that come about? How long have you been writing it? How many readers do you have?

JW: In God's plan, a few months after I heard Jim Russell speak, the publisher of the Andalusia Star-News contacted me about writing a weekly religion column. Over 13 years and almost 700 columns later, I am still writing a weekly religion column. Along the way, an editor named it "Everyday Faith." About three years ago, an Enterprise, Alabama, newspaper began publishing my column. The combined circulation of both newspapers means that I could have a potential audience of over 15,000 readers.

Coming next: What was your winning article about?
