Advice for Newcomers

Be prepared every class and practice, practice, practice!
  • Prof. Piacente is very helpful if you talk to him and will give you helpful feedback on practice stories you do on the side if you give him fair notice.
  • Keep up on your current events and if you get behind check the website for the 'todays newspaper' link at the top of the main page.
  • You tackle all the types of written media so be careful and don't get your styles mixed up with each other.
  • Be short and quick to the point on all your stories but at the same time don't leave anything unusual or catchy that the reader might enjoy and can make your story better.
Good Luck,

David Grant
