I got my start as an intern at Dave Eggers' oral history publication Voice of Witness in San Francisco in 2014, where Eggers dubbed me their "fire-haired power intern."
I worked as a freelance multimedia journalist in the Netherlands for several years, writing narrative long form, story editing/consulting film documentaries, and collaborated on immersive multimedia projects.
I made my first radio documentary for Dutch Public Radio in 2019, about an idealistic project in my Dutch hometown during the Northern Irish Troubles. Every two years, a group of Protestant and Catholic teenagers from Belfast visited our town for three weeks to befriend the enemy. They stayed in mixed couples with Dutch host families, including my family when I was 1 year old. The goal was to inspire the new generation to end the Troubles, but no one stayed in touch with the teenagers to find out what happened after they left. I tracked down the two women who stayed with my family and found that the project had an immensely positive impact on them, but for very different reasons than the project organizers intended. Because audio production teams are uncommon in the Netherlands, I researched, interviewed, transcribed, edited, structured and sound designed the entire documentary on my own. The production made national best-of lists.
I came to New York University to truly master narrative non-fiction. While there, I discovered a love and talent for editing my peers' work and was hired as Digital Editor for Cooper Squared, NYU's online publication for undergraduate journalism students.
Patrick Radden Keefe shares the ins and outs of writing his bestselling non-fiction novel Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland. Of the four years he spent on the book, he claims 90 percent went into research and outlining and only 10 percent into the actual writing. So what did that process look like? In a candid conversation with Dutch journalist Inge Oosterhoff, Patrick Radden Keefe talks all about the best way to tell a true story and how to arrange the truth into a compelling narrative that reads like a novel. He explains why he believes access is overrated, why footnotes offer creative freedom, and how he came to terms with the understanding that there were stories he didn’t need to tell.
