Since 2000, Donna Campbell and Georgann Eubanks have worked together as the principals of Minnow Media. Their documentary videos have been seen on public television in North Carolina and around the country. Both began their careers in print--Donna as the founding publisher of Lake Norman Magazine near Charlotte and Georgann as a writer of profiles, reviews, poetry and short fiction.
Donna’s first documentary project, ANY DAY NOW, completed with her sister Susan Campbell in 1990, won national awards from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Association of Women Broadcasters in Radio and TV. More than 20 years later, the program is still used in women’s shelters, courtrooms and classrooms across the country to increase understanding about domestic violence.
Georgann is a North Carolina Arts Council Literary Fellowship winner and was director of the Duke University Writers Workshop for 20 years before launching the Table Rock Writers Workshop, a project of the Minnow School. She also works as a communications consultant in higher education and the arts. Georgann has chaired the North Carolina Humanities Council and served as president of Arts North Carolina--a statewide professional development and advocacy group for the arts.
In addition to their work in video, Georgann and Donna created Literary Trails of North Carolina--a series of three guidebooks published by the University of North Carolina Press. The books provide tours of the state based on excerpts from writers past and present who have helped to lift up North Carolina’s culture and natural amenities.
