Michael Koretzky

adviser, Florida Atlantic University Press

Michael Koretzky is a freelance journalist in South Florida, where he started and sold two alternative magazines — one to the Tribune-owned Sun-Sentinel and the other to the one-armed heir to the Listerine fortune. Koretzky has also been managing editor of an international jazz magazine, content editor for a national extreme sports/punk music website, a blog editor for JetBlue, and a copyeditor for the nation’s second-largest homeless newspaper. For 12 years, he advised the student newspaper at Florida Atlantic University until he was fired in May 2010. But he refuses to leave and now volunteers there against the wishes of administrators.
