Knowing stories through review reports : an experience at The New Age
MetadataShow full item record
Since childhood, only writing could stabilize my restless thoughts. So, I always dreamed to be a writer; and as a Media and Cultural Studies student later, a journalist. Thus being able to do an internship at The New Agewas a great opportunity for me. I had a very good experience there, where I could finally apply my academic knowledge in practical work. In addition, it also taught me a lot of new things about journalism, feature writing and how to cover a story in general. I joinedThe New Age as a feature reporter for two weekly supplements- Trends and Life. I was responsible for writing reports on various organizations, event, people, shops and restaurants. This paper tries to present a brief account of my experience as an intern and also my insights into the particulars of the industry and its different genres of writing.
