Story Pitches for the Future
Make the case. You want to pitch a story about a quirky little diner that is shutting after a short but successful run. It doesn't sound like much of a story--unless you can say that the diner attracted a large clientele from the city's legal community.
I don't have much experience with pitching stories. In high school, we used to come up with different stories and just put them on a board to discuss with the other staff members. And, in college, I haven't attended very many meetings with the Setonian. However, this reading was very useful, and I have a feeling that it will be more useful once I get a job in the real field of journalism. I also think it will help me to think of angles to write my own stories. All in all, this was a very informative piece.
