Lantern class — Some things to remember

**Remember that we must do things the right way. Always be professional.

**Remember to send me your raw copy that editors received. I have seen some stories in the paper/online already this week that I have not received from you.

**Remember that your stories must include contact sheets for all human and other sources. Include URLs to help the editing process.

**Remember that you must suggest headlines for every story.

**Remember that you must be thinking visually for every story. Is a photo request needed? Would video work? What about a graphic or other design element?

**Remember that punctuation marks go inside quote marks “like this,” NOT “like this”.

**Remember to get the answers to the questions you ask for. If you ask for the cost of something, get a number, NOT a generic quote with no specifics.
