- It is to be 2,500 words long
- You should quote at least eight people
- You should include 10 links to offsite information
There will be a mandatory rewrite due sometime during finals week, at a date and time TBA.
If there's one vital piece of information I can impart to you, it is this: Please give me what you consider to be a finished story on April 9. If you hand me a story that is significantly short and does not quote at least eight people, that will affect your final grade.
More important, I won't be able to do the kind of structural editing that will help you turn in a better story when you rewrite it. Instead, I'll be trying to figure out how you should go about doing what you should have done on the first draft.
I saw some excellent ideas on your story memos, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
