Below is the first draft from a story published in volume 25, issue 4 of the Prospective. It came from a rookie staff writer who has significantly struggled with AP style and mechanics. This was her third full story to submit to the print editors, and while she had improved significantly from her first few stories, there are still some glaring issues.
After multiple edits, style suggestions and new interviews, this was her final and published story. The improvements are evident.
