Writing Workshop

News story assignment

You’ve had some practice writing leads and a short news story in class. Now it’s time to write a news story that will be fully graded.

I’ve posted a link to the fact sheet for the News Story assignment, which is due next Monday, Sept. 29, on both the class schedule and on the assignments page. Please check the assignments page to review the requirements for this assignment. (Note: It’s the third item listed under the Outside Writing Assignments heading.)

This is a shortish new story. Make it around 200 words, which is about a page double-spaced.

Do not post this assignment on your blog. Print it out and submit it in class Monday as a hard copy.

    Does the news story need to be 250 words? With 6 short paragraphs I am still far from 250 words.
