quotation marks

“I have been consistently astounded by friend and Stetson University professor Andy Dehnart’s boundless capacity for watching and analyzing reality TV shows.”

Eric Deggans, St. Petersburg Times

Loyola Marymount University

“What I like most about Andy’s presentations and sessions is that he goes beyond just telling students what to do. Instead, he shares examples of his experiences as a working freelancer and reality television expert. Andy encourages students to pursue writing, but without sounding Pollyanna-ish about what the prospects are of landing a well-paying freelance gig. His wealth of experience with magazines and publishing — along with a wry, sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor — provides him a credible voice that really connects with students.”

Tom Nelson, professor of journalism, Loyola Marymount University
