Each story should be 500-600 words. After the student has written the first draft of each story, he will submit the story to Sister Hilda via email for comments and editing. Additional editing appointments may be done in person as schedules permit.
Each story will be edited at least once; it will be edited additional times if this is needed for the story to be of sufficient quality to be published. Only those stories that are published will count as work completed for the practicum.
Practicum students are responsible for submitting photos to accompany their stories. A student may take photos himself or solicit photos from other students. Should the student not have a digital camera, cameras are available from the AV department and from Sister Hilda.
1st Story: first draft due February 3; final story due February 10
2nd Story: first draft due February 20; final story due February 27
3rd Story / Additional Stories: first draft due March 19; final story due April 19
Grades are assigned according to the amount of work the student completes for the publications of Mount Angel Seminary. While practicum students may generally choose the stories they wish to cover, Sister Hilda reserves the right to assign a story that needs coverage to the practicum students.
