You will be writing a 500-600 word article that profiles your favorite musician, movie, or TV show. You must include the following in your article:
- Must use at least 2 outside sources
- Must include at least 2 elements of newsworthiness
- Must be objective and accurate: All information, including background must be factually accurate; background information must be cited. (According to the American Medical Association…)
- Must include an interesting lead
- Must use conventions of standard English with quotes properly punctuated
*This is not a biography of the musician, nor is it a summary of the plot of a TV show or movie. One of the challenges of being a reporter is coming up with a spin on a certain topic. Find a unique and interesting approach to your topic that you would personally enjoy reading in a magazine or newspaper.
