A great many people who want to be writers say that they want to have a career in journalism. They may envision themselves going to exotic locales to cover stories. While these things do happen to journalists, it takes a long time to make your bones before you are sent on any interesting assignments. A journalist is someone who reports on timely events. Timing is everything to a journalist. Whether you write for a periodical or a newspaper, you need to make sure that your articles are timely. Your purpose is to keep the public as up to date as possible when it comes to news and events that may affect them. This is the basic concept of being a journalist. As a journalist, it is your job to reveal information to the public. This should be impartial, timely and truthful. To get into the computer system of the first journalism job that I had, the password was “truth.” You have to write the truth of what you see and hear and let the public form an opinion. You need to always quote sources when you are writing a journalism piece as you should not attribute anything to your own knowledge. Your articles should be written from a third person point of view and from the outside looking in. As you continue in your career, you will find your voice when it comes to your writing. Do not be surprised if your first articles are rewritten by your editor. Another rule that you need to learn when you are starting a career as a journalist is to not fall in love with your own work. Do not feel hurt if an editor does not like a phrase in your article, or makes some changes. They are only doing their job. You will soon get to know the editor and they will get to know your style of writing. A journalist usually gets a job as a news reporter, and both news reporting and journalism are careers that are interchangeable. While many people think of journalists as writing on top stories or features all over the world, the education that you need to become a newspaper reporter and to be a writer for a magazine is the same - a degree in journalism. Anyone who writes an impartial article, be it news or feature stories, is practicing journalism. If you choose to have a career in journalism, you will most likely get many different assignments in your career. The basic rules of journalism apply to everything that you write. Many people feel that newspaper reporters only report the news and give more credit to journalists as they investigate the news - this is not true. Most newspaper reporters do a fair share of investigation into their stories, or should. Those who report on crimes in the area and court actions are usually editors who have done their fair share of investigating in their stories. You will quickly learn, when you are embarking on a career in journalism, which the more you look into a story, the better the story will be. Sometimes you have time to do this, other times you are working on a tight deadline. You should be able to work on a tight deadline when you are a journalist. Not only is this important if you are writing news stories, but it is also great training for any writer. The more you write, the more concise your work will become and the better quality you will be able to churn out in record time. If you are interested in being a journalist, sit back and start reading. This book will tell you everything you need to know about becoming a journalist and making a living writing - both online and off line.

An acclaimed journalist travels the globe to solve the mystery of her ancestry, confronting the question at the heart of the American experience of immigration, race, and identity: Who are my people? “A rich and revealing memoir . . . Futureface raises urgent questions having to do with history and complicity.”—The New York Times Alex Wagner has always been fascinated by stories of exile and migration. Her father’s ancestors immigrated to the United States from Ireland and Luxembourg. Her mother fled Rangoon in the 1960s, escaping Burma’s military dictatorship. In her professional life, Wagner reported from the Arizona-Mexico border, where agents, drones, cameras, and military hardware guarded the line between two nations. She listened to debates about whether the United States should be a melting pot or a salad bowl. She knew that moving from one land to another—and the accompanying recombination of individual and tribal identities—was the story of America. And she was happy that her own mixed-race ancestry and late twentieth-century education had taught her that identity is mutable and meaningless, a thing we make rather than a thing we are. When a cousin’s offhand comment threw a mystery into her personal story–introducing the possibility of an exciting new twist in her already complex family history—Wagner was suddenly awakened to her own deep hunger to be something, to belong, to have an identity that mattered, a tribe of her own. Intoxicated by the possibility, she became determined to investigate her genealogy. So she set off on a quest to find the truth about her family history. The journey takes Wagner from Burma to Luxembourg, from ruined colonial capitals with records written on banana leaves to Mormon databases and high-tech genetic labs. As she gets closer to solving the mystery of her own ancestry, she begins to grapple with a deeper question: Does it matter? Is our enduring obsession with blood and land, race and identity, worth all the trouble it’s caused us? The answers can be found in this deeply personal account of her search for belonging, a meditation on the things that define us as insiders and outsiders and make us think in terms of “us” and “them.” In this time of conflict over who we are as a country, when so much emphasis is placed on ethnic, religious, and national divisions, Futureface constructs a narrative where we all belong. “Alex Wagner is brilliant and hilarious.”—Eddie Huang, bestselling author of Fresh Off the Boat
