Bart Gellman

Bart Gellman had aspired to be a Washington Post reporter since college. In 1988, three years after completing a master’s degree in politics at University College, Oxford, the Post hired him to cover the District of Columbia Superior Court.

After 21 years and two Pulitzer prizes, Gellman left the Post in 2010 to concentrate on long-form writing projects.
