Writing is hard. Reporting is tough. Finding stories can be a pain in the patootie.
With that in mind I am flagging a few things to get your creative juices flowing.
Because hey, we don’t want the MN Daily to beat us in terms of traffic. RIGHT?!
The National Magazine Awards are the Oscars for the mag world.
Here, the winner of best interactive feature. Note, it’s by the AARP (yeah, that group for OLD people.) Goes to show you “hip/forward thinking” doesn’t mean young.
Here’s the list of NMA nominees. Take a look at photo portfolio, feature, etc. If you haven’t already looked at the Pulitzer winners and finalists now’s a good time. Seriously. On a brain-dead day I’d spend time assessing the major award winners over the past year; then I’d read other work by the award-winning writer to get inspired. Nothing like reading the best to get better.
Lastly, here’s a link to a collage of projects made by supraprint winter students. It’s what I’m thinking could be the result of our gang field project on Tuesday. More on that to come.
