Pittsburgh City Paper Internship – Week 2

My second week at the City Paper added more responsibility, but also more fulfillment.

Because I already proved I understood how to write the Short List, I was given five to write. I find the events I am told to write about interesting. One of the events was a Comicon I had already planned to attend. Another was a lecture from a famous reporter I had already been aware of form following the news. This reporter is April Ryan, a black reporter who had some infamous run-ins with President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. 

The Everyone’s a Critic art event I went to was an interesting lecture from Hip-Hop artist Hollyhood about sexism in hip-hop. She was very knowledgeable and eloquent, even though, unfortunately, the event was poorly attended. 

This week I also got to work on a traditional story. I did an interview about and did some research on upcoming efforts from the Toonseum to expand their educational resources for kids. 

That was the big development from this week: I began to add in traditional reporting to my regular schedule.
