Each of our pages go through at least three proofs for design and content. This is a third proof of a page from our most recent issue.
New reporter information sheet
Adapted from worksheets made by past editors of The Roar (some pieces of this sheet are taken directly from older worksheets)
Our printing schedule required that new reporters be assigned to an article the day of our first meeting. I put together an information sheet that my freshman self would have loved — it contains basic, step-by-step article-writing instructions and provides each editor's contact information.
