Asbury Park Press launches student-run blog

My journalism students are writing a blog for the Asbury Park Press.

The online journal, named "MUspace," reports goings-on at Monmouth University (MU) and in the surrounding town. It’s updated daily.

The Asbury Park Press is a Pulitzer Prize-winning daily newspaper based in Neptune, N.J., with a circulation of about 160,000. The blog is one of several new features the Gannett newspaper will introduce in coming weeks as part of a major upgrade of its Web site.

Publishing articles isn’t anything new for my students, who this semester have had articles accepted for publication in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Asbury Park Press, Gloucester County Times and other newspapers.

Why am I telling you this? To illustrate some of the good opportunities available to enterprising young journalists. For more ideas on how to get published while in high school or college, check out my upcoming column in the December issue of Quill.
