Los Angeles Press Club Award

First Place:

Columnist, Daily/Weekly Newspapers

Judges' Comments:
Ms. Strasser brings a fresh and funny perspective to an age old topic: Romance. She's the Jewish Carrie Bradshaw of Greater L.A.


Los Angeles Press Club Award

Columnist of the Year:

Daily/Weekly Newspapers- 'Saying Goodbye to an Angel in Sin City.'- The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles

Judges' Comments:
This column told a good story and told it well. Ms Strasser has a great voice and uses quotes and details well.  She allows the reader to see the story clearly and feel a part of it. The column is also a touching reflection of our society's rituals surrounding death.

Los Angeles Press Club Award

New Feature:

'The Evil Stepmother Dies'- The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles

Judges' Comments:
An almost lyrical narrative of a ghastly family tragedy. From the brutally honest lead to the thoughtful last line, we couldn't put the story down.
