Working in the Missourian Newsroom


This semester I had the opportunity to gain real newsroom experience working as a copy editor for the Columbia Missourian. I was tasked with editing stories for content, sentence structure and grammatical errors, resizing and rewording headlines for print and I was even given the chance to serve as the author of the newspaper’s weekly newsletter. I was lucky to be able to continue to have an influence with my writing at the Missourian since finishing as a reporter here in December 2018. Learning to publish social posts was another way I managed to let my creativity shine, especially when it came to things like constructing the daily weather haiku and writing the newsletter when it came time for a city-wide event.
