Partner Spotlight!
The Granite State News Collaborative (GSNC) is a collective of almost thirty local media, education, and community partners (including New Hampshire Humanities!) working together to produce and share news stories on the issues that most impact our state. The idea is that together we can provide more information to more communities across New Hampshire than we could individually.

Led by journalist Melanie Plenda, GSNC amplifies the strengths of its members to expand on and add missing dimensions to coverage of issues of concern to the Granite State as a whole, as well as to particular communities. New Hampshire Humanities is working with GSNC and its partners to create community engagement events in the coming year. Learn more at
