Supply some images and some copy for the first years to use for their magazine project.

Multiplatform Journalism

Pretty much a redundant phrase now as Journalists are automatically expected to be able to cover all the bases.

  • Written articles
  • Videos
  • Podcasts
  • Twitter

News or Feature?

News

  • What’s happening now.
  • Summation of known ‘facts’.
  • Culturally significant.
  • Need To know.
  • Unusual.

Feature

  • Less time crucial
  • Often defined by section
  • More in-depth
  • Cross section of expert opinion
  • Historical Investigation

Go out and find something that’s happening at a particular time, on a particular day; there is always news happening but it isn’t always something ‘big’.
