An intro to my news writing

I’ve recently discovered an interest in news writing for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, my father is a radio personality, so I’ve grown up with that influence my entire life. I also have a love for storytelling, which lead me to be involved with theatre starting in high school up until today.

I think my theatre background allows me to tell stories in a unique way. News writing allows one to do this but in a compacted format, which I find both challenging and refreshing. Over the semester, I’ve learned how to put as much information in as few words as possible, but still make it readable and entertaining. I have uploaded some samples of my news writing that I feel best represent my abilities and skills I’ve learned these past few months. Enjoy!
