“The reason I came here is because I always had a soft spot for Franklin School and the most important people in the community are kids,” says Greg Elliott.  Everyone sat up waiting for what he would say next. He shared everything that these writers should know about being a journalist. Students listened and wrote notes faster than their pens wanted to write. He talked about putting in the main details and the smaller details and other news writing tips. Also, he told the team about being aware of the things around you because you never know what is worthy of being in a paper. He  shared inspiring tips from the world of journalism.

One of the most important parts of this event is when he got serious and talked about very important parts of being a journalist. Greg Elliott said, “You have to try to be everywhere and it is stressful to do it!” The students learned that you always have to be attentive and pay attention to what is around you.

Students felt confident and inspired by Greg Elliott. The students are excited to go on to become journalists. They learned a lot about the work that goes into the writing. The Franklin Falconwriters are so thankful to Greg for all the tips they learned and also for the tremendous opportunity to share their writing!
