I'm Nationally Published!

Over the last month or so, I’ve been working on a group multimedia story for my intro reporting class.  All stories were related to the election; my group focused on chalk messages and their use as a way to express alternative points of view.  After a long, long process of writing, rewriting, editing and messing with recalcitrant technology last week, our story was published yesterday!

You can read our story here: Beyond red and blue: Chalking up alternative talk

The story was published as part of the New Voices Project at The Takeaway, a national morning news program.  In an e-mail sent to my professor letting her know the story was published, the website editor called our project, “One of New Voices’ most original submissions,” which is awesome.

I promise I won’t link to every single story I ever get published, but since this one was first, and since this one was so much work, you’ll have to indulge me this time 🙂
