Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working as an intern at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch where he analyzed campaign finance reports data and wrote stories based on that data. These stories covered lawyers donating to Missouri Governor Jay Nixon's campaign, out-of state donors to Senator Claire McCaskill's re-election campaign, Representative Steve Webb receiving free tickets to various events from utility companies overseen by the committee he co-chairs, and migration and the movement of wealth within the St. Louis metropolitan area. Includes field notes and examples of work. In the research component, the author examines how the "current generation of younger writers at newspapers [are] finding ways to produce narrative stories" (p. 72) in the wake of reduced budgets and layoffs. The author interviewed 16 U.S. newspaper reporters age 35 and under about their ability to pursue narrative stories for their newspapers and finds that most reporters do have the opportunity to write narrative stories. However, these stories tend to be shorter requiring less time to write, and writers must be willing to take more risks in pitching narrative story ideas to busy editors in order to succeed. Includes a literature review
