Summary

Journalism of Ideasis a comprehensive field guide for brainstorming, discovering, reporting, digitizing, and pitching news, opinion, and feature stories in the world of journalism 2.0. Dan Reimold gathers together advice from journalists worldwide and dozens of story ideas ripe for adaptation, along with interactive exercises, assignment prompts, guiding questions, source suggestions, ethics and cliché alerts, and blueprints for building innovative multimedia stories. The exercises, observations, anecdotes, and tips in this book touch on every stage of the story planning and development process, including how news judgment, multimedia engagement, records and archival searches, and various observational techniques can help spin a brainstorming session into published gold. Separate advice focuses on the storytelling methods involved in photojournalism, political journalism, business journalism, sports journalism, crime reporting, commentary writing, and investigative journalism. In addition to these tricks of the trade, Journalism of Ideas contains an extensive set of prompts to inspire the student journalist-based on newsworthy, timely or unconventional stories that fall within every essential and popular reporting beat worth mastering. All these ideas are directly connected to stories recently published by student press outlets across the U.S., Canada, and parts of Europe and Asia. Combined with pointers and exercises, these prompts jumpstart a storytelling conversation that continues on the author's blog, College Media Matters. A concluding segment focuses on the professional sphere. Reimold shows students how to successfully launch a career in journalism: the ins and outs of pitching stories, getting them published, and navigating the post-graduation job search. Related tips touch on the art of freelancing 2.0, starting an independent site, blogging, internships, constructing quality online portfolios, and building a social media following.
