Entertainment Department of The Post-Standard/syracuse.com, Syracuse, NY
In this internship, I reported and wrote stories for The Post-Standard. This included a variety of assignments, from short copy-blocks and press releases to in the field reporting and creation of stories. The completed assignments have been published in both print and online media.
Most Significant Experience
The most interesting thing I've learned is how to write for an audience made up of the general public. It's a different way of thinking in terms of what information is relevant and what kind of language to use. It's also been useful learning to work under a deadline that is much stricter and comes about much faster than the ones I've experienced in academia.
