Cristian Lupşa is the editor of Decât o Revistă, a quarterly magazine covering the stories of modern day Romania. A native Transylvanian who didn’t turn out to be the doctor his family hoped he’d become, Cristian graduated from the University of Bucharest in 2003, and then, in 2005, earned an MA in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He was a researcher-writer on the second edition of Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel’s The Elements of Journalism, a book he considers his personal bible. In 2009, two years after returning to Romania, Cristian and a group of rebellious journalists started DoR, a magazine predicated on the idea that good nonfiction storytelling can change people and communities. Under his supervision, his staff has won multiple national writing awards. Since 2011, he oversees an international storytelling conference in Bucharest, and also teaches journalists, and other professionals. He spent the 2013-2014 academic year as a fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University. When he’s not on duty, he pays close attention to World Wrestling Entertainment.
