My first article for their newspaper made the cover. I don't frequently write for this publication, but when I do I'm given a month or two to work on one article. I must come ready with my own ideas and reasons of why I picked those ideas. Once something is decided on then I am sent on my way to produce a long-form article for their newspaper.
