RVI Fellows Recommend: Filip Balunovic


“Resonant Voices Fellowship offered me a unique experience of in-depth investigative journalist work. Apart from the very research and the writing process, I enjoyed the collaboration with Matt Robinson during the final editing process. Professionalism, financial and humane support – this is what I got from the fellowship. An in-depth, carefully and professionally written story about the topic you feel passionate and capable to write about – is the least the outcome could be. Considering all the support, this was, for me, indeed an enjoyable task.”
