Your Beat Idea

Start thinking about your “beat” – the topic you want to cover for the semester.

Your beat should 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 regular access to your beat and people, places, and events. You will be required to do original reporting. You will interview people, take photograph, gather audio, and shoot video.

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?
