About the Sconz
The Sconz is a politics and culture blog founded by Jack Craver, a 22-year-old recent graduate of UW-Madison. Since its beginning in May of 2009, the site has become a leading Madison source for news and commentary on local and state politics. In March 2010, the blog moved from wordpress to The Daily Page, a website run by Isthmus, a Madison alternative weekly newspaper.
In addition to blogging daily for Isthmus, I regularly write political news and analysis for the paper edition. In April, I wrote a cover story on national blogger and UW law professor Ann Althouse.
Readers are enthusiastically encouraged to post anything in the comments section, from blistering criticism to slathering praise. Also, if you’re interested in contacting the Sconz in private, don’t hesitate to email: firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message to our facebook account: Wiss Sconz (Madison network) or follow me on Twitter: thesconz. I should also remind you to add the Sconz to your RSS feed if you have one (I recommend Google Reader; if you already have gmail it’s cake).
And of course, as an underemployed recent college grad, I am always happy to hear from prospective employers or any other person interested in my work. Please drop me a line!
