Finding story ideas

  • Sign up for e mail alerts, rss feeds, twitter alerts


Things to work on for your next stories

Things to work on for your next stories

  • Sources

  • Your story should not just be based on putting together news reports that you have found on the web

  • After you find a story you want to work on, try and see what the original source of the story is: press release, speech, appearance on TV?


Course work for my section

  • Get in touch with experts or people on the ground, and get more information

  • If you read something on a website, see who the author is. Is the author well known, reliable? Can you trust this source?

2. Facts

  • Journalism is about getting your facts right. It is your job to make sure that the facts that are in your story are correct

  • Go to original sources as much as possible

  • Otherwise try find more than one source for the same fact, until you are sure it is correct

  • Link to the source of your information, if it is not an interview you have done yourself.

3. Putting things in context

  • Do background reading on the subject you are writing about so you can put things in context, and understand whether a story is important or not

4. Is your story interesting?

  • If you think it is interesting, why is it interesting?

  • Bring it out in your story


Above all

Above all:

  • Write your own story, in your own words. Cutting and pasting and copying without attribution is plagiarism, and you will face penalties.
