Send me an email with the raw copy you sent your editors. Subject line should be Section, Number of story.
For example: if Dan is filing his first story for Campus, the subject line would be: Campus 1.
If Joan is filing her 4th story for Sports: Sports 4.
Send me everything you do for class, from full stories to commentaries to contributions for other stories. That way, you get credit/extra credit for everything. If you don’t send it to me, how can I give you credit?
COMMON PROBLEMS TO AVOID
* Know the rules on names, numbers, titles
* Missed/buried ledes, not prioritizing within 5 W’s and H for news and not taking advantage of feature opportunities
* Not enough sources, and stories that lack voices of authority
* Over reliance on email
* COMMAS OUTSIDE QUOTE MARKS!
