Clara Germani is an award-winning professional editor and writer based in St. Louis.
As a staff reporter for The Christian Science Monitor and Baltimore Sun she covered news in the Western Hemisphere from Patagonia to Haiti and Washington D.C. to Alaska; and as a Moscow-based correspondent, she roamed the former Soviet Republics for stories. She was a police beat reporter for the Orange County Register and a federal court reporter for City News Service in Los Angeles.
As managing editor at The New England Center for Investigative reporting, she was involved in a project that exposed possible juror racism in a murder conviction, leading to the defendant's release in December 2017 and new trial in 2018. She was also nominated by three reporters for The Dart Society Mimi Award, the nation’s only journalism prize recognizing exceptional work for a newspaper editor. Her work with them on war-related projects in Liberia, Central Africa, Iraq, and Afghanistan won the 2009 Mimi honorable mention.
She also has taught news reporting and editing at Emerson College, Georgia Southern University, Webster University, and Principia College.
