Hello! My name is Joseph Flaherty and this is my website. I write for Phoenix New Times.
I grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin and received an M.S. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I was awarded a Pulitzer fellowship. As an undergraduate at Middlebury College, I studied history and political science and spent a semester at Istanbul’s Bogazici University. After graduating, I received a Fulbright Grant to Turkey, where I taught English at a university. My writing and photos have appeared in The Economist‘s website, BBC Travel, Muftah Magazine, and REORIENT magazine.
