Los Angeles Times

Diana Marcum

Writer

Diana Marcum covers the Central Valley and places beyond it for the Los Angeles Times. She began her career in Palm Springs, where one of her earliest jobs was as a stringer for this paper. She wrote a column covering odd corners of the Central Valley for the Fresno Bee before moving temporarily to the Azores Islands for a book project. She began freelancing again for The Times in 2010 and became a staff writer in 2011 – her stated career goal since fourth grade. In 2015, she won the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing for her narrative portraits of farmers, fieldworkers and other Californians in drought-stricken towns in the Central Valley.
