For the first half of my final year the journalism students were split in to two groups of 9 and produced an online local newspaper together.
The group had to each produce 12 articles in total. Six were for news for a dummy edition to get feed back from our tutors about. The second group of six were for a real week of news between the 10th and 17th December 2014.
The group had to coordinate what articles they were doing so the same article wasn’t written about. Each person also had the responsibility to produce a range of content from news articles, multimedia and photojournalism pieces, entertainment news and reviews.
Working with the other students was challenging but also helpful as it was good to communicate and talk about articles with other students.
As the newspaper was just online other elements such as social media tasks were involved also changing the writing style to suit online journalism more.

I like your review style, Vicki. Would love to have you also share your reviews on reviewcreep.com and get you some free exposure. The easiest way to get started is by using your existing review blog posts since you’ve already done the work… just enter your wordpress blog url when it asks for it during the quick signup… it will make it easy to add all your existing reviews. Our marketing team is going to be sending out the top reviews in a daily/weekly curated email to our entire list.
