Practicum – Point Park Globe

This week at The Globe, we worked diligently to put together Issue 5.

I had a few essential responsibilities this week. My first was to run the pitch meeting at 2:40 p.m. at the Center for Media Innovation. Emily Bennett, editor-in-chief, usually runs the meetings, but had a prior commitment. As second in command, I stepped up to the plate to help out.

Each pitch meeting runs in a fairly similar way. I first introduce each section editor – News, Features, Opinions, Sports and Arts and Entertainment. Each editor then addresses the room with their stories for the week.

Following the meeting, writers approach the respective editors of the section they are looking to write for.

After the meeting, I headed up to The Globe offices on Lawrence Hall’s seventh floor.

I started working on The Globe’s Point – this week we addressed the issues surrounding registration.

My other responsibility as editor-elect is to send out the “missed pitches” email – listing the pitches that weren’t taken at the meeting. This gives writers who weren’t present the opportunity to still write that week.

I also edited various stories in the copy room and edited layout in each section on Adobe In-design.

I left The Globe office around 11:00 p.m. that evening.

The next morning, Emily and I both arrived at 8:30 a.m. to give the sections one last read-through before it was sent to The Tribune Review for print.
