Journalistic Writing

Oh, the Things Kids Will Know: This article has been sent to Parents Magazine, but I enjoyed writing it regardless of if it is published. Around Dr. Seuss’s anniversary, I decided to write an article considering whether children’s books were becoming too liberal or if the notion was only in conservatives’ minds. I talked to a lot of interesting people, but the hardest part was getting their real feelings. I learned how to get people to talk openly, or at least more openly, when politics or opinions came into play. One source even tried to get my stance on the subject, but I respectfully told that person I was writing this article to see both sides, not choose one.
