Long tradition of undercover journalism which works for social justice, the rights of workers, what the workers lives are like under capitalism and the difficulties they face Writes about how overlooked these people are and to have unions forget about these people and step over them without having enough resources or opportunity to have enough for your family to improve their circumstances Read, Rich (2011) “The French Fry Connection”, in Jack Hart’s Storycraft: the complete guide to writing Narrative Non-Fiction, Chapter 12, pp. 183-201.

Very clever, fascinating way to provide a multi-faceted story – economic overview (main point), life of the French fry, the peoples perspective and what their lives are like and how they are impacted PERSONAL NOTES: GOOGLE DEFINITION: Narrative journalism is an immersive style of storytelling used to captivate readers by drawing them into a story with greater detail than is found in traditional news story. ARTICLE – what it’s like being a VET, or a dental assistant, going through a flowers market, etc. It enables you to begin to gage an idea and line up certain research earlier rather than later in the semester Find the idea you want to work on, and start to get the interviews in-line now
