Your profile subjects

I am enjoying talking with you face-to-face about your inauguration stories. Your next drafts are due by noon Wednesday or a time to be worked out, if you have not yet talked to me by then. I graded the first attempts based on the criteria of word count, number of quotes, etc. -- not so much on the structure/lead/writing. You will receive specific feedback on the structure/lead/writing for the next draft.
For your profiles, see the syllabus and the blog for specific instructions. Try to find someone to profile who is compelling to you or whom you would want to know more about. Try to get permission from that person for the profile. If you can't, try to have a backup person. This continues our journalistic investigation into writing for an audience.
See you Thursday!
