Story I edited:
Every Friday afternoon at 2 in the CIM, Sidelines holds their weekly meeting. As the Assistant Lifestyles Editor, I attend these meetings every friday. To prepare for the meeting, I contribute story ideas to the lifestyles budget along with the other section editor Tayhlor Stephenson. The writers for the lifestyles section are supposed to bring pitches to every meeting, which can consist of a variety of topics from movie/TV show reviews, event coverage, lists, etc. We have a few writers that have developed their own beats within the section. For example, Sydney Wagner has become our go-to fashion reporter. After the writers meeting, we also have an editor meeting where we discuss how our sections are doing, how we can improve the paper and any upcoming big events that various sections may need to team up to cover. Overall, our meetings are fun and help you to keep on top of what’s happening in the community.
