News Journalists.com?

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by always_looking, Sep 11, 2008.

  1. Folks,

    I know that SportsJournalists.com tried a news journalists message board a while back that didn't fly. Since then, have any similar sites for news (non-sports) journalists popped up that someone can direct me to? Thanks in advance for any help.

    This is far from a sports-journo-dominated site. Lots of sporst journos, yes, but an equal amount not in sports.

    Used to love reading that site. Shame that it went away.

    Used to be a forum called Poison Kitchen which was excellent as well.

    Back to the topic at hand:

    Like some one else mentioned, there's lots of non-sports journos here. I'm one of them - business, government and cops - although I used to be an SE for a small weekly.

    I have found the journalism board on here an invaluable resource, up to asking an AP style question on a news story because I'm either away from my AP book or my book is so old I can't find the answer I need.

    I usually can find that answer here - which is what keeps me from leaving the board when I get aggravated by some of the piddly crap on the other sub-boards.

    There's some great people here, willing to help. Don't ever think that help is limited to sports writing only.

    Absolutely. I've posted news stories and opinion columns on the Writers Workshop threads. I've gotten excellent feedback from several people on here.

    I'm not great, but I'll help, too.

    Later in the week, I'll be willing to help as much as I can.

    Early in the week, I'm focusing on putting my paper out.
