I got my first job! I was hired as a reporter/photographer at the Petawawa Post in Ontario. I’m working on their social media as well. And it looks like I’ll be allowed to take on multi-media projects.
It’s a community paper. Petawawa is mostly a military base. We also cover town events and sometimes expand to the neighbouring communities (Pembroke and Deep River). I’m living in Pembroke.
I won’t normally push articles and the weekly paper through my personal social media channels, but I set the paper up with its own. Which I’ll be managing and updating regularly. If you’re interested follow us on Facebook, Twitter, orGoogle+
I’m going to keep trying to sell freelance pieces. The size of this paper won’t allow for longer print stories, and they wouldn’t make any money off radio docs. Anything with a Provincial or National scope wouldn’t make sense for this paper either.
I’ll keep posting freelance stuff here, and possibly bigger projects that I’m particularly proud of.
