We are very excited about the continued progress of The Trumansburg Troubadour! This Fall we are fortunate to have Amanda Livingston, a junior Writing major at Ithaca College working with students from all three schools. Read below her recent update on the Troubadour and join us in welcoming her to the TCSD Community!
The Trumansburg Troubadour editorial staff has made great strides in producing a Fall 2015 issue. The editorial staff is led by Amanda Livingston, a junior Writing major at Ithaca College, and advised by Molly Buck, an active leading member of the TCSD foundation. The staff of eight students, who meet weekly and contribute virtually, have been brainstorming article ideas on events occurring in the Trumansburg School District and community. They’ve also been talking about how best to go about writing articles, writing articles based off of these ideas, going over the editing process and the Associated Press Style (the writing style and form used primarily by news and media outlets), the different types of feature writing, and skills needed to write feature articles, among many other things. Final drafts are due December 2nd, and the first issue is expected to come out Monday, December 7th 2015.
