Company: Bell Tower Press
Description: I am looking for a simple news story for a proof-of-concept website targeted at students of a local university campus. This project will pay $75 flat rate. Freelancer must be a U.S. Citizen, Texas citizen preferred.
This article is a for a Conservative-minded news site that focuses on issues important to local college students. The site does not discuss national politics, but only local issues and broader cultural and philosophical ones relevant to college-age students.
Anyone from any philosophical perspective may apply as long as they are comfortable associating with a site of this editorial point of view.
The assignment is very simple: please obtain a statement from the university athletics director about his department's intentions to pursue a fee increase and then obtain reactions from the student body president and student leaders in the student senate. These contact will be primarily through email.
I will provide contact info for these sources and can provide an example of what I'd like the article to look like.
I can provide example texts of how to solicit a request for comment from the university and from student leaders. In addition to this, I will also provide a fact sheet with links to primary sources so you can provide some context in your article. Again, this is a very simple straight news story.
I will publish the finished product news article to my proof-of-concept website, Bell Tower Press, at https://belltowerpress.wordpress.com/.
Article should be in AP Style and in the inverted pyramid format. (Example of inverted pyramid format: https://tinyurl.com/3jb9dm3u.)
Please contact me if interested. Again, anyone is welcome to apply.
