I need someone to write a 400 word news story on the topic of multiculturalism in Melbourne Australia. The story should be focussed on one community or issue. It could break news about an event in a local ethnic community or reveal an issue or problem that affects an ethnic group in Victoria. It could explain how a Melbourne community is coping with a problem or situation. The range of stories is wide. But it must be NEWS.
You will have to do the research for this topic.
The story must not be written as a feature story. It must say something that is genuinely new, and not published elsewhere. It should be written in the inverted pyramid style. The story also needs to include quotes from two interviews – The story must be accurate and clear and written concisely. (you will tell me who to interview and I will interview them for you)
there should be no more than 30 words per paragraph (preferably only 25 words).
Demonstrated news sense.
Demonstrated ability to gain information and quotes from interviews.
Demonstrated news writing ability, including the way the story reflects competing voices and viewpoints.
