Eureka Moments

I recently made a new friend who asked me how we come up with story ideas for Iowa Alumni Magazine. I told her that inspiration can strike anywhere – and at any time.

For example, last Friday, I attended the Landlocked Film Festival in downtown Iowa City. I was watching a documentary called From the Badlands to Alcatraz (which followed a group of Lakota youth challenged to swim from Alcatraz to the San Francisco shore) when I realized the director and doctor who mentored the young adults graduated from the Carver College of Medicine. Immediately, I knew I’d love to do this story for readers of Iowa Alumni Magazine.

How and where do you find your muse?
