Meeting 2: Getting Ideas, Gathering Information

  • So, you know you want to write for the newspaper....now what?  You need to figure out a few things before you can get started:

    • What kind of writing do you want to do?
    • What topic would be interesting to you and to your audience?
    • What do you want to say about your topic?
    • What questions do you want to answer in your writing?
    • Where will you get the answers to those questions?

    Thinking through these questions will get you ready to create something wonderful for the paper!
