Inside the News

Ever wonder how a newspaper gets published? THIS IS IT.

Here’s a few photos of the Horizon’s news staff designing our next issue. The process can be hectic, but it’s usually fun.

Just sorting out the news can be a difficult task. The Horizon’s editors have to decide which news should be in color, which need to be placed up front, and where our advertisements need to go. With Cutter as the new editor, we’re making some big changes to our newspaper. The process has been exciting and challenging.

WCC news hasn’t changed much, but the way it’s presented has. Being an online editor, I am beginning to realize that presentation goes a looooooooong way.

Often, the decisions we make for our design get scrapped – much to Melissa’s dismay. It can be a bit painful to throw away an idea that you have worked hard to create. Taking criticism and criticizing others can be a difficult thing to get used to as well.

Despite the headaches, the Horizon’s news staff makes well of their time and enjoys their work. It also allows the students to get out of the rigid mindset of the traditional classroom and collaborate, suggest ideas, and brain storm.
