I currently was given an amazing opportunity to interview with some of my favorite idols, but I don't have much experience writing journalism. As in, I literally have written one article in the entire existence. However, through some contacts, I was able to land an opportunity to write for a magazine which I currently read. They want a writing sample and I honestly don't have any any good journalism articles.
I want to get some articles in within 2 days (At the end of Wednesday)
My articles will be about:
- J-pop music scene
- Specific music artists
- Mobile gaming and specific games/companies
They will be both in print and online.
What are some resources that I can read to get to know the style of writing and vocabulary? I'm coming from a computer science background so this is pretty out of my comfort zone.
Are there experienced writers whom I can pay to critique my articles?
If not any of the above, can you guys recommend some writers from newspapers that you love?
That way I can read and learn from them
