Well I don’t know about other newsrooms but cowlitz county has some real talent in the newsroom, especially in the field of education. We got a chance to hear the stories of two of those people, Steven and Kevin. They were both quite impressive in their reporting and their writing, and it was refreshing to see how two students who are very much in the know about the local news scene could come together to tell the stories that they know.
One of the other things that has been refreshing about cowlitz county in recent years is the way in which students have helped staff tell the stories of others. This year was no exception. At a conference hosted by the county’s journalism school, students presented two workshops on how to write a news story, and the staff member who ran the workshop was able to tell the story of another student who had written a story about a man who wanted to run for mayor.
A few years ago I wrote a story about “Cowlitz County” that appeared in the cowlitz county news section of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. It was based on a visit I had made to the town a few years previously. I was there to write a story about a real person, not just a fictitious character.
I got a call from the editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who said the story had been accepted and would be in the paper the next morning. I emailed the editor to see what he thought, and he said yes, it was fine, we’d only be putting it in the paper for a day. I thanked him for the heads-up, and was surprised to hear that the story was approved for publication.
I wasn’t just thinking it was fine, I was pretty confident that it was really going to be in the paper, too.
