What's going on in your religion or faith community right now? And what should I, as a secular humanist journalist, know in order to broadcast respectfully about your faith?

MA-J portfolio

I'm a young Canadian based in Toronto, looking to beef up my Journalism Masters application for next year with more clippings and media work. Can anyone suggest some places to pitch stories to? I'm thinking along the lines of CBC Outfront or Spacing magazine. I'm sure there are lots of places out there I haven't thought of. Thanks!

Crash course in scientific journalism.

Crash course in journalism filter: I have a job interview for a scientific web-journalism position later this week.

I think this will test my journalistic skill. So does any have any crash-course in online journalism links, advice, etc? [more inside]

Help a young journo put herself through news writing bootcamp.

I need resources to improve my news writing. I'm already working in a newsroom, so this isn't a"halp mee, I wants to be a writter" post. Rather, I want to increase my fluency in the basics so that tight, accurate prose always flows naturally, even under deadline. I'd also like to increase my vocabulary and craft skills as a writer so that when I'm less pressed for time, I can really make the language dance. [more inside]

Tell me about "Tell me about" ... if you'd be so very kind.

Every time I hear a journalist say "Tell me about ..." when interviewing someone on television, I get really annoyed. It seems so incredibly presumptuous, pompous and impolite to demand an answer of a guest like that. Yet it happens all over the world. Is this standard journalistic practice? What's the reasoning behind it? Anyone else feel the same way or am I being a relic? [more inside]

Letters to the Editor Protocol?

Is there a journalistic protocol that newspapers adhere to when printing letters to the editor? The small town newspaper from where I grew up typically just posts a random assortment of letters from old codgers. However, in the last 3 years or so it has been posting, on an almost weekly basis, letters written by a local man who founded a very prominent White Nationalist organization, and who at one time was one of the most prominent neo-Nazis in America.
