Bob Sloan, editor of The Hartsville Messenger joined the “Writing for Media” class at Coker College to tell the students about the life of a community journalist. “Visiting professionals give the students a new perspective about the class work and this is especially important in the field of journalism,” said R. A. Puffer, associate professor – communication.

The students wrote inverted pyramid stories on the visit, taking the perspective of reporters for this exercise. I hope some of the students will post their stories as comments to the Blog so they can see what they look like when printed in a public forum.

Many in the class commented that they found the visit productive and that they enjoyed hearing about the multiple jobs that are involved in being a community journalist. The Hartsville Messenger is part of the Media General media corporation.

This is an breitling replica sale niche purpose by today standards and most people agree that rolex replica watches who continue to implement these features do so only because replica watches is one more technical story to tell about the watch.
