— My final thoughts/tips for you
AND MORE FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
** ASSIGNMENT FOR FINAL PAPER
You are charged with applying for the editor position at publication of your choosing or crafting a plan for a new publication.The publication must have a print and web component.
In four pages, I want you to detail your attributes as an editor and propose a plan for changing the editorial/digital direction of the publication or, if you are creating a new publication, defining your niche and scope as a new publication. In addition to discussing core editorial content and story ideas, you must discuss a strategy for the print product, digital product(s), social media and other marketing strategies. Be as specific as you can with your ideas for the publication. (80 points// due Monday, May 12 at noon. Please e-mail to Sarah McKenzie at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
