A couple of months ago, I started a writing blog along with fellow reporter Jessica Lipscomb.
Each week, a group of Naples Daily News reporters meets to talk about how a reporter pulled off a story that we read and liked. Hence the name of our blog: storieswereadandliked.com.
Jessica and I take turns interviewing the journalists behind the stories for more insight into how they reported and wrote each piece. Often, the stories are narrative or long-form, but we’ve also looked at daily stories and columns.
So far the group has been pretty productive, and the blog is our way of sharing what we discuss for those who can’t attend in person. Check it out!
