    Want to be a foreign correspondent? She's got some heartfelt advice to offer

    How has foreign correspondence changed over the years? I asked Aya Batrawy, an Associated Press correspondent based in Dubai whose responsibilities extend into Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Arabian Peninsula. Over emails and an outdoor dinner in Dubai’s lively Jumeirah Beach area, Batrawy talked about lessons learned in nearly a decade in the region.

    Aya, what skills should you have before landing in a place like the AP in Dubai?

    From journalism class, tragedy — and a new course

    Suzanna Barna was just shutting down her computer in journalism class, thinking about her too-long story on her high school’s internet filtering policy.

    The school newspaper story was 1,600 words, and her workaround was to chop it into two 800-word segments.

    Riveting Twitter thread solves a mystery and reads like a serial narrative

    Some 22 years ago, Poynter senior scholar Roy Peter Clark tried an experiment in the pages of his hometown paper, the (then) St. Petersburg Times. Over the course of 29 days, the paper published short installments of a serial narrative he wrote titled “Three Little Words.”

    It told the story of a couple’s struggle to come to grips when he uttered the words, “I have AIDS.” The content and form of publishing were both praised (novel and inviting)  and criticized (graphic and annoying) at the time.
