And… ACTION!

By Maria Ribot (Managing Layout Editor)

The Vertical and WIRED are collaborating to make the switch of the century. Both crews will swap to see what it’s like to fulfill each other’s roles and responsibilities. In these next couple of weeks, the WIRED crew will be in the journalism room, learning how to pitch, plan, write, layout, and publish news stories. Currently, the WIRED crew is beginning to write their pitched and approved stories, which will appear on the March 2019 issue of The Vertical, which came out in March.

The Nease Wired news broadcast show and The Vertical, the school newspaper, collaborated to switch places and experience what it’s like to be in each other’s place and appreciate the contributions that video and print journalism have in communications. Much of February for WIRED member consisted of producing stories, editing, and laying out in the computers while The Vertical staff members worked with WIRED to produce their very own package.

 

Both WIRED and The Vertical were eager to make this switch for the purpose of experiencing a type of journalism that they are not used to. As the thought process and conceptualization of both stories and packages progressed, both teams realized how rigorous is the work to produce and publish either forms of journalism. This switch helped bring awareness to mainly print journalism, as it is becoming less popular among high school students.

Stay tuned for the epic and iconic WIRED and Vertical switch!

Update 1/29/19

The WIRED teams have started typing their stories into an official, shared document to start the editing and revision process. As the WIRED team drafts their stories, they progress through the interview and transcription process at the same time. After their first draft is done, they will endure the editing process, which will last until our Co-Publishers send off the newspaper files to go to print.

Update 2/8/19

The WIRED teams have finished their second draft of their stories and have started receiving edits from The Vertical staff members and revising grammar and spelling throughout their stories. Once the editing process concludes, the WIRED team will face the computers and interact with our dear friend, InDesign to layout their story on an actual newspaper page.

Update 3/8

Newspaper staff members’ packages aired today! We couldn’t be more proud of our accomplishment that we’ve achieved. Video journalism requires a completely different area of expertise and it was definitely hard to cope with everyday challenges.
