Your “beat” – what you want to cover for the semester – is due Mon, Sept 14 or Tues, Sept 15.
It can be a specific subject, geographic location, or community. Here are some things you should consider when picking your topic:
1. You should be passionate about your beat or at least want to be passionate about your beat.
2. You must have access to people, places, and events so you can do original reporting.
3. Think about it as a publication. What is your niche? Who is your audience? What kind of publication you would like to have at the end of the semester?
