You will cover the same place twice. Consider the flowing questions about each piece: How will you report it? Is it service journalism (a useful read) or storytelling (a good read?)
Write this article as a blog (about 300 words). Star with a short, engaging opening that creates a sense of place and lets readers know why they should go (award, news peg, trend).
Think about your angle-for example, places to volunteer in Puerto Rico following the earthquakes; snowshoe tours to breweries in Vermont given the popularity of craft beer.
Think about your potential sources-websites, phone interviews, past visits
Think about your structure-a list, a roundup, a slide show.
Version2(after 2 days}
Write this article as a feature story (750 words) after visiting your destination. Start with an engaging opening then share your experience, creating a narrative arc.
Think about your angle, which is most likely personal-for example, volunteering for my sister’s birthday instead of surfing in San Juan; convincing my kids to like snowshoeing by trekking to a restaurant in Vermont.
Think about your potential sources-firsthand observations, in-person interviews, overheard conversations
Think about your structure-a chronological highlighting the most compelling events
