Editing project

  • Attending a Sidelines meeting

I attended the weekly Sidelines meeting on Friday, March 23. Not a lot of people were there that day, but there were quite a few of us from the Lifestyles section. Katrina Johnson and I pitched the idea to cover MTSU’s annual fashion show put on by the textiles, merchandising and design students. We talked about it with the Lifestyles editor, Tayhlor Stephenson, and we also decided it would be cool to live-tweet the show from the Sidelines Lifestyles account on Twitter. A few other people also pitched ideas including a movie review and coverage of an Easter egg hunt on campus that weekend.

  • Writing a story for Sidelines

Here is the link to the story I wrote with Katrina Johnson covering MTSU’s annual fashion show on Saturday, March 24.
