August is here and with it comes the back-to-school season. It doesn’t matter if you’re enrolling your child into preschool or going back to school yourself, one thing is for sure: back-to-school shopping is a must.
Thinking back to younger days, that might have meant going to the local store with our parents and picking out a shiny new backpack, crayons, and cartoon character-covered folders.
While there may not be a need for crayons or cartoon character folders in journalism school, there is still a need for the right tools for success. When people think journalism, most think a computer and a cup of coffee are all you need to get a good story in the books. As nice as that would be, there is still a bit more required to help you put your best writing forward.
Some of the best supplies for a journalism student may come in the form of hardware or software. In fact, some of the best ways to quickly (and affordably) boost your writing could be as easy as downloading a free add-in to your favorite browser. However, that’s not to say that you should skip over the core hardware products.
Bringing these two groups together will have you ready for class and ready to create your best work yet.
Whether you’re a brand new student or about to graduate, these eight tools will be sure to help you improve your organization, story ideas, and even your overall writing skills without breaking the bank. Implementing all or even one of them could help you be more organized and produce better stories.
