Journalistic Writing Samples

March 26, 2012

This section shows my skills at writing in various journalistic styles. As an editor, I think this section is important because it shows that I can be unbiased in my writing, while still engaging the reader.

This section includes four feature profiles, each one about a very different, unique individual. The first profile is of Dr. SJ Miller, of IUPs English department, highlighting his life and accomplishments. The other three profiles are of my peers. The first, on Brianna Buynak, is unlike the others in that it is a piece about her done in a creative way that really showcases my use of language. Whereas, the following two profiles on Mark Anderson and Alycia King, are personality profiles done in a limited amount of time, focusing on career and educational goals of the individuals. All four profiles not only show my strengths as a writer, but also my ability to work and communicate with others.

The following three pieces in this section cover events in IUPs 6:00 Series program. I included these pieces because they show my ability to pay attention to detail, both of the guest speaker and the audience.

Finally, the last piece in this section is an example of a breaking news story involving crime reporting, which I included in this portfolio to emphasize my diversity in writing.
