Project Description

Need local news style articles written.

Locality is Greensboro, North Carolina

Must be written in the form of a newspaper article, so:

Your headline should clearly state what your article is about. It should not contain a period or exclamation mark. Use the AP "down style" for all headlines: all lowercase, except the first word and any proper nouns.

If you are writing a current news piece then: it should have happened within the last 72 hours related to your chosen topic.

You can write *informational articles, advice pieces, reviews, how-to articles and other articles of value to the locals*.

**I don't want blog articles??"it's not about you, it's about being informative.**



**So....use third-person narrative. While your perspective is an important facet of the article, your writing shouldnt espouse your personal opinion in every [url removed, login to view] need credible, relevant information about the topic, and the clearest way to do so is to pull yourself out of the story and narrate it from a reasonably objective point of view. Third-person narrative allows you to accomplish this without coloring your article with too much opinion and too little information.




****Be concise. I am not asking you to adhere to strict guidelines in terms of length. We do, however, recommend articles stay between 300-400 words.


**General Text: All articles must be free of profanity, hateful speech and libelous statements, and any content you have reason to know is false or misleading. All content must be original, and quoted materials must cite the original source.**
