Anjali Khosla joins Journalism+Design

The Journalism+Design program is pleased to welcome Anjali Khosla, the newest addition to our faculty. Khosla will bring a unique toolkit honed over her six year tenure with Fast Company.

During her time with Fast Company, Khosla helped launch the publication’s digital newsroom where she served as Digital Editor, built a West Coast bureau, and established the company’s audience development strategies. Between editing features, articles and investigations for the masthead, she and her colleagues won ASME’s 2014 Magazine of the Year award. She previously worked for the New York Daily News.

In addition to her recent contributions to J+D, Khosla has taught at Columbia, NYU, and UMass. Her nonfiction, fiction, and poetry have appeared in Nieman Journalism Lab, the New York Times Local: East Village, Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Rochester Post-Bulletin, Tarpaulin Sky, and Juked, among other publications.

She has been a featured speaker at events such as the Global Editor’s Network Summit and the Online News Association Conference, taught workshops on behalf of the Society for Professional Journalists, judged award submissions for The Deadline Club, and evaluated grant applications for the Knight Foundation in Miami.

Khosla has both an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and an M.A. in Journalism from New York University’s Studio 20 program. She currently serves on the board of advisers for Local Standard, a new hyperlocal media network launching soon in New York City.
