Matthew V. Jennings
Editor, Middlebury Magazine and Editorial Director, Communications
Middlebury College

Matt Jennings is the editor of Middlebury Magazine, a quarterly periodical published by Middlebury College. Under his guidance, Middlebury Magazine won numerous national awards for general excellence, editorial content and design; has been cited by education associations and journalism foundations for excellence in higher education reporting; and received national plaudits for its 2012 redesign by renowned creative director D.J. Stout.

Jennings has twice co-chaired the CASE Editors' Forum and regularly conducts conference workshops and webinars on editorial best practices. He also co-directs the Middlebury Fellowships in Narrative Journalism and is a member of the American Society of Magazine Editors. In January, he spent two days cloistered in a room with 24 other magazine professionals, judging the best feature writing in American magazines (and ultimately voting on the National Magazine Award in this category). It was as close to nirvana as he'll ever get.
