After nine hours, staffers get a dinner break outside of the newsroom. Some are completely finished with their assignments, while some will return to work after refueling. Stay tuned on twitter and Instagram: @spjwrite4food for more coverage.
The morning meeting: students stake their claim on the stories they will write, photograph, record while designers plan out an entire issue of the Homeless Voice.
On August 31, 2013, 21 student journalists descended upon Hollywood, FL to take over the Homeless Voice, the second-largest homeless publication in the country. Students will write, edit, photograph, record, and design an issue of the Homeless Voice—all in 36 hours over Labor Day weekend. On their first night, they toured the COSAC Homeless Shelter, eating dinner with residents and visitors.
