I’m the editor for a small, community newspaper. We have an equally small budget for writers/reporters and since we only publish weekly, there’s no way someone could fully support themselves by writing for the paper. Sometimes I luck out and find someone with experience or, at least, good writing skills who is just looking for part-time work. On the other hand, sometimes I get to read things like this:
*Every week since she was three, Jeanne has tentatively attended her ice skating classes without hesitation. *
Given the rest of the article, this was one of the better sentences relative to structure and spelling.
Any other editors have any great writing samples to share?
