Sure, our writers like to hear from us about how well they're doing on PolicyMic. But sometimes it's nice to hear from other media outlets about how great an article is — (kind of like when someone besides your mom gives you a compliment).
We get it, which is why we're proud to feature a monthly round-up of other media outlets where our pundits make their mark.
Below is but a mere sampling of the places PolicyMic-ers made headlines this month. Congrats to ALL of our community members who've been highlighted across the web.
If you've been mentioned elsewhere, please let us know so we can brag about you.
Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) (Subj: PolicyMic Press Mention) with a name of the publication and link to the article, and we'll try to include in our next press mention round-up.
