Made of atoms you can use for something else, how to start a college magazine, part one: ground rules and structure, want help starting a magazine.
I might be able to answer some questions or provide specific guidance. Feel free to contact me directly .
This is the first article in a four-part series on starting a college magazine, written by the Chairman of the Yale Record , America’s oldest humor magazine. There’s a lot of information here; pick and choose whatever seems helpful.
As the chairman of the Yale Record , and the person whose email is connected to this web page , I get requests from students around the world to advise them on college magazine projects.
I looked around the internet to find resources on this, but most of them were written at least a decade ago, or applied only to newspapers, rather than the humor magazines/fashion blogs/scholarly journals people were asking me about. So I decided to write a series of posts explaining most of what I know about college publications.
This is part one of the guide, which deals with “ground rules”: things you should do, or think about, before you start writing and recruiting.
For part two, which deals with building a staff, click here . For part three, which deals with creating content, click here . For part four, which discusses growing your publication after you start producing material, click here .
I’ve worked on over a dozen publications at Yale, ranging from blogs to newspapers to magazines. Some of those publications were over a century old; others had been created within the last month. I’ve also edited four publications, and I’ve done just about every job there is for the Record, from selling advertisements to working on the website.
In addition, I’ve been lucky enough to work with older mentors who have decades of collective wisdom on building excellent college publications. I’d especially like to thank Michael Gerber, who saved a struggling Yale Record from total collapse in the 1980s.
Who should use this guide?
The people to whom this advice most closely applies are college students starting magazines and other publications (including blogs with many writers).
The guide might also be helpful to high school students, and to non-students trying to start small (circulation 5,000 or fewer) publications in their own towns or online communities.
My advice also applies to daily and weekly newspapers. But if you’re starting a newspaper, there are many other good resources available. Try reading this , this , and this alongside this guide.
Are You Sure?
First things first:
Are you sure you want to start your own publication?
Starting a newspaper or magazine is a sizable endeavor, and most new college magazines fail within a few years. There are many alternatives, some of which might be better ways to get what you want.
For example, you could:
Start a blog. Blogs are free (or very cheap, if you’d like to buy your own domain), and much less complicated to run than a bona fide magazine. Plenty of great publications are only available online, and articles published online are much easier for publishers and authors to share with the world. WordPress is a beautiful platform, easy to set up, and powerful enough to do almost anything you could want.
Publish a one-time project. If you’re interested in the publishing process itself, or in doing something with printed material that can’t be done through a blog, consider just printing a single “issue” without expecting to print more. If that single issue is hugely popular, then it’s much more likely that starting a publication is a good idea.
Talk to an existing publication. You might be able to partner with another publication at your school to produce something new. For example, if you like art, culture, and humor, and your campus just has a single serious newspaper, you could ask the editors about starting up a “weekend” section that publishes lighter content. This gives you access to the publication’s resources and experience, without stopping you from contributing ideas and brainpower.
Still want to try this? It won’t be easy. Think about it for a second.
Starting a publication could be the most rewarding thing you’ll do as a student. College publications have launched the careers of hundreds of distinguished writers, and they’ve been a source of deep friendship and camaraderie for over a century. By starting something, you’re taking the initiative to become part of a grand tradition, and for that, I salute you.
Before You Start
Once you’re sure you actually want to start a publication, there are a few more steps you should take.
Get to know your campus publication scene. Whether your college has one newspaper or an entire newsstand’s worth of publications, reading what students are publishing will give you a sense for what kinds of writing your college still needs. If you’ve got three different newspapers but no literary magazine, there will be legions of students waiting to publish fiction if you give them the chance. If a quarter of the campus majors in Visual Arts, but there’s no established art magazine, you’re already off to a promising start. And so on.
Find money. You’ll need it to print copies, if you plan on printing copies. Some strategies that might work: Advertisements for local businesses and school events, grants from local or national foundations, money directly from your college, small contributions from each staff member, fundraising events, etc.
The Record makes most of its money from advertising, with small amounts coming in from Yale’s student activities committee and from alumni donors. Other Yale publications make money in very different ways. If you’re sure you want to print physical copies, take whatever you can get.
Talk to professors. If your college offers a Journalism major, that’s a perfect place to start, but English and Communications professors are also a good bet. Many good things can happen as a result of these conversations: Your club could get a new faculty adviser, you could learn about a grant you can apply for, and you might even get connected to other students on campus who also want to start a publication (co-founders make life much easier).
Prepare your technology. You don’t have to be a programming/design expert, but you should at least have working knowledge of the technology that is going into your publication. Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll need:
- Word processing/editing software: There’s really no good reason to use Microsoft Word instead of Google Docs. You, the editor-in-chief/president, should be able to see every piece as it is being edited and leave comments of your own. But don’t force writers to share unfinished pieces — first drafts are early enough for you to go in and see the writer’s progress.
- Design software: InDesign is the standard here, but it’s expensive ($240/year from Adobe, even with a student discount). Here’s a list of free/cheap alternatives ; Scribus is the best-liked of these, from what I’ve heard.
- Photo-editing software: Photoshop is obviously the standard here, but GIMP is free and does basically the same things in a similar fashion. I’d stick with GIMP unless your school has Photoshop access already.
- Online hosting: WordPress is so good that other options probably don’t make much sense, unless you’re looking for an extremely quick-to-learn alternative like Tumblr. WordPress.com is easy to use and free, but a self-hosted WordPress.org website will make it easier to change the design, speed up page loading, and so on. (Web hosting will cost about $50/year at a place like Siteground , the web host I use.) Here’s a good article on creating a WordPress.org site ; there are hundreds of others out there.
Write sample articles. Before investing huge amounts of energy into a full publication, or trying to recruit staff with nothing but promises, write some content yourself, or get some friends to do it. Then, design a front page or sample blog showing off the articles you have. This way, you can show interested students exactly what they’ll be working on, while proving that you are a serious founder.
Establish Your Brand
What kind of publication would you like to start? (If you already know, you can skip this section!)
If you don’t have something specific in mind, you may want to consider some combination of the following formats. I’ve included one Yale example for each, so you can see how the style works on a college level:
News. Daily, weekly, or hourly updates on what is happening around campus, around town, or around the world. Plus, opinion pieces! Think: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Yale Daily News.
Alt-weekly/culture. Focuses on less traditionally “journalistic” news stories, plus lots of writing about the local art scene, plus reviews of movies, music, TV shows, and books. Think: The Village Voice, Pitchfork, The Yale Herald.
Long-form journalism. Stories that delve more deeply into the issues of the day than an average newspaper can. Might also include travelogues, essays, reviews, and interviews with public figures and other newsmakers. Think: Harper’s, The Atlantic, The Yale New Journal.
Creative work. Short stories, excerpts of longer stories, poetry, creative nonfiction (personal essays, philosophy), interviews with writers and artists, and perhaps illustrations and other works of art. Think: Paris Review, The New Yorker, The Yale Literary Magazine.
Humor. Parodies of other media. Jokes, lists, and stories. Fake news headlines and interviews. Satirical videos. Bizarre tweets. Think: The Onion, McSweeney’s, The Yale Record.
Art and photography. Yes, you guessed it: Art and photography. Probably also some words about the art and photography. Think: Metropolis Magazine, Surface, The Yale Obscura.
There are plenty of other styles and topics besides these, of course, and there’s no reason a publication has to fall into any particular genre “box”. If I were starting a new publication, I’d publish anything awesome I could find, whether it was an article, an essay, or a painting.
Bonus: Three Rules for an Awesome Publication
Whenever you’re faced with a tough decision, or feel a lack of direction, these rules can show you the way. I’ve been in many situations where using them would have made a positive difference for the magazine in question.
Try Lots of Things. You’re starting a new publication, which means you aren’t bound by lots of old-fashioned rules or traditions. Whenever you get an idea that might be good, you should try it and see what happens. In the worst-case scenario, it doesn’t work, and you never have to do it again. In the best-case scenario, it becomes something you can do over and over again. (For example, the Record started making videos a few years ago, and those wound up reaching people who never read our magazine.)
Learn from the Best. There are thousands of college publications out there. Here, for example, are one hundred of the best college newspapers . Read these kinds of publications. Study those which most appeal to you — including, of course, newspapers and magazines and blogs written by skilled professionals. My favorite place to find great writing is Longform , but you probably have your own favorites. Learn from them. Also, you should ask everyone on your staff to read On Writing Well , the best book ever written about writing.
Do Something Original. Even though you’re learning from the best, there’s not much point to starting a publication that slavishly imitates other newspapers and magazines. You should have an overarching and original purpose when you start out: Telling stories no one else has, giving attention to little-known subjects, speaking truth to power, or simply bringing laughter to a place that takes itself too seriously. The best publications all feature something unique to themselves, whether it’s the Harper’s Index or the Record’s Mailbags.
All right! You’re well on your way to starting a publication! Read on to learn about recruiting staffers, creating content, and growing the publication after you print your first issue.

Hi! I really liked the ways you’ve mentioned above for the starters to publish a newsletter in their college! Really impressive!! We have also started a newsletter in our medical school! Now I know where I’ve got to improve it to the best!! We have named our newsletter “the hotline.” And we try to publish it after a month or two cuz of our extremely tough medical studies and routine!!
Hello there, nice write up I must say. I’m part of a committee interested in starting up a magazine for our College(natutal sciences) and the problem seem to be the interval of publications. Is it advisable to publish it once per session?
Well it’s not recommend but you can try. You only have 3 years in college so that would be 2 years for you to upgrade your magazine from nothing to the best and only issuing it once a session it won’t be much. You can try but once a week or twice a month is stil a better choice
Honestly, if it means you produce a better magazine, I’d recommend monthly or once every two months — quality over quantity. But you want to have a regular schedule with firm deadlines; otherwise, you might never publish anything at all.
quite a cursory brief of all the basic things indeed. but I would also like to know how to evolve the brand value of the magazine for readership in this hotly contested world of publication today. in essence, do you have insights about digital marketing??
If you want to launch a magazine that gets a lot of digital readers outside your college, I’m afraid I can’t help — that’s a very difficult task. The main value of starting a magazine in college is getting experience as a writer, editor, and/or project manager; hopefully, the other students at your school will want to read the magazine because it has local news other magazines don’t, or because they know people who write for it, or because you make it very easy for them to find in paper, or some other reason that gives you a unique edge over professional magazines.

Write a report for your college magazine on the intercollegiate feat held in your college
A report on intercollege event.

We thoroughly enjoyed the event. The final speech by our chief guest was really inspiring and motivating. He urges students to concentrate on both academics and non-academics. He said " Success is not a T20 match. It is a test match where all the five days of matches are important to win" . Finally, we distributed awards and prizes to the winners. We also celebrated the Birth anniversary of our college founder. As a mark of respect, we provided food and clothes to a nearby orphanage . Kids from the orphanage visited our college and enjoyed the Intercollege event.
On 22/ 02/2018, a colorful and memorable Cultural Fest was organized in our school. This event was whole day long and was held in the auditorium of our school. In this mega event, many schools from our city took part.

It was followed by a welcome speech given by the Principal of our school. Then there was bouquet presentation to the invited guests and the grand event began. It was a truly mesmerizing show as the teams from various schools presented many programmes . there was singing, dancing, poetry recitation, skits, mimicry, mono act shows, classical and modern combination of several foot tapping numbers. Everyone sat glued to the show. The Chief Guest praised the entire event a lot. He guided with his inspirational words and inspired to do better . It was followed by the announcement of the winning team , ABC School of our city. The team from our school bagged second position and everyone complimented one another.

The term “report” refers to a nonfiction work that presents and/or paraphrases the facts on a specific occasion, subject, or problem. The notion is that a good report will contain all the information that someone who is not familiar with the subject needs to know. Reports make it simple to bring someone up to speed on a subject, but actually writing a report is far from simple. This blog will walk you through the fundamentals of report writing, including the structure and practice themes.
This Blog Includes:
What is a report, reporting formats, newspaper or magazine reports, business reports, technical reports, what is report writing, report writing: things to keep in mind, structure of report writing, magazine vs newspaper report writing format, report writing format for class 10th to 12th, report writing example, report writing for school students: practice questions, report writing slideshare.

A report is a short document written for a particular purpose or audience. It usually sets out and analyses a problem often recommended for future purposes. Requirements for the precise form of the report depend on the department and organization. Technically, a report is defined as “any account, verbal or written, of the matters pertaining to a given topic.” This could be used to describe anything, from a witness’s evidence in court to a student’s book report.
Actually, when people use the word “report,” they usually mean official documents that lay out the details of a subject. These documents are typically written by an authority on the subject or someone who has been tasked with conducting research on it. Although there are other forms of reports, which are discussed in the following section, they primarily fulfil this definition.
What information does reporting contain? All facts are appreciated, but reports, in particular, frequently contain the following kinds of information:
- Information about a circumstance or event
- The aftereffects or ongoing impact of an incident or occurrence
- Analytical or statistical data evaluation
- Interpretations based on the report’s data
- Based on the report’s information, make predictions or suggestions
- Relationships between the information and other reports or events
Although there are some fundamental differences, producing reports and essays share many similarities. Both rely on facts, but essays also include the authors’ personal viewpoints and justifications. Reports normally stick to the facts only, however they could include some of the author’s interpretation in the conclusion.
Reports are also quite well ordered, frequently with tables of contents of headers and subheadings. This makes it simpler for readers to quickly scan reports for the data they need. Essays, on the other hand, should be read from beginning to end rather than being perused for particular information.
Depending on the objective and audience for your report, there are a few distinct types of reports. The most typical report types are listed briefly below:
- Academic report: Examines a student’s knowledge of the subject; examples include book reports, historical event reports, and biographies.
- Identifies data from company reports, such as marketing reports, internal memoranda, SWOT analyses, and feasibility reports, that is useful in corporate planning.
- Shares research findings in the form of case studies and research articles, usually in scientific publications.
Depending on how they are written, reports can be further categorised. A report, for instance, could be professional or casual, brief or lengthy, and internal or external. A lateral report is for persons on the author’s level but in separate departments, whereas a vertical report is for those on the author’s level but with different levels of the hierarchy (i.e., people who work above you and below you).
Report formats can be as varied as writing styles, but in this manual, we’ll concentrate on academic reports, which are often formal and informational.
Major Types of Reports
While the most common type of reports corresponds to the ones we read in newspapers and magazines, there are other kinds of reports that are curated for business or research purposes. Here are the major forms of report writing which you must know about:
The main purpose of newspaper or magazine reports is to cover a particular event or happening. They generally elaborate upon the 4Ws and 1H, i.e. What, Where, When, Why, and How. The key elements of newspaper or magazine report writing are as follows:
- Headline (Title)
- Report’s Name, Place, and Date
- Conclusion (Citation of sources)
Here is an example of a news report:
Business reports aim to analyze a situation or case study by implementing business theories and suggest improvements accordingly. In business report writing, you must adhere to a formal style of writing and these reports are usually lengthier than news reports since they aim to assess a particular issue in detail and provide solutions. The basic structure of business reports include:
- Table of Contents
- Executive summary
The main purpose of the technical report is to provide an empirical explanation of research-based material. Technical report writing is generally carried out by a researcher for scientific journals or product development and presentation, etc. A technical report mainly contains
- Experimental details
- Results and discussions
- Body (elaborating upon the findings)

A report is a written record of what you’ve seen, heard, done, or looked into. It is a well-organized and methodical presentation of facts and results from an event that has already occurred. Reports are a sort of written assessment that is used to determine what you have learned through your reading, study, or experience, as well as to provide you hands-on experience with a crucial skill that is often used in the business.
Before writing a report, there are certain things you must know to ensure that you draft a precise and structured report, and these points to remember are listed below:
- Write a concise and clear title of the report.
- Always use the past tense.
- Don’t explain the issue in the first person, i.e. ‘I’ or ‘Me’. Always write in the third person.
- Put the date, name of the place as well as the reporter’s name after the heading.
- Structure the report by dividing it into paragraphs.
- Stick to the facts and keep it descriptive.
Must Read: IELTS Sample Letters
The format of a report is determined by the kind of report it is and the assignment’s requirements. While reports can have their own particular format, the majority use the following general framework:
- Executive summary: A stand-alone section that highlights the findings in your report so that readers will know what to expect, much like an abstract in an academic paper. These are more frequently used for official reports than for academic ones.
- Introduction: Your introduction introduces the main subject you’re going to explore in the report, along with your thesis statement and any previous knowledge that is necessary before you get into your own results.
- Body: Using headings and subheadings, the report’s body discusses all of your significant findings. The majority of the report is made up of the body; in contrast to the introduction and conclusion, which are each only a few paragraphs long, the body can span many pages.
- In the conclusion, you should summarize all the data in your report and offer a clear interpretation or conclusion. Usually, the author inserts their own personal judgments or inferences here.
Report Writing Formats
It is quintessential to follow a proper format in report writing to provide it with a compact structure. Business reports and technical reports don’t have a uniform structure and are generally based on the topic or content they are elaborating on. Let’s have a look at the proper format of report writing generally for news and magazines and the key elements you must add in a news report:
To Read: How to Learn Spoken English?
The report writing structure for students in grades 10 and 12 is as follows.
- Heading : A title that expresses the contents of the report in a descriptive manner.
- Byline : The name of the person who is responsible for drafting the report. It’s usually included in the query. Remember that you are not allowed to include any personal information in your response.
- (introduction) : It The ‘5 Ws,’ or WHAT, WHY, WHEN, and WHERE, as well as WHO was invited as the main guest, might be included.
- The account of the event in detail : The order in which events occurred, as well as their descriptions. It is the primary paragraph, and if necessary, it can be divided into two smaller paragraphs.
- Conclusion : This will give a summary of the event’s conclusion. It might include quotes from the Chief Guest’s address or a summary of the event’s outcome.
Now that you are familiar with all the formats of report writing, here are some questions that you can practice to understand the structure and style of writing a report.
- You are a student of Delhi Public School Srinagar handling a campus magazine in an editorial role. On the increasing level of global warming, write a report on the event for your school magazine.
- On the Jammu-Srinagar highway, a mishap took place, where a driver lost his control and skidded off in a deep gorge. Write a report on it and include all the necessary details and eyewitness accounts.
- As a reporter of Delhi times, you are assigned to report on the influx of migrants coming from other states of the country. Take an official statement to justify your report.
- There is a cultural program in Central park Rajiv Chowk New Delhi. The home minister of India is supposed to attend the event apart from other delegates. Report the event within the 150-200 word limit.
- Write today’s trend of Covid 19 cases in India. As per the official statement. include all the necessary details and factual information. Mention the state with a higher number of cases so far.
- In Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium New Delhi, a table tennis tournament was held between Delhi public school New Delhi and DPS Punjab. Report the event in 250-300 words.

Report Writ ing in 7 steps
- Choose a topic based on the assignment
- Conduct research
- Write a thesis statement
- Prepare an outline
- Write a rough draft
- Revise and edit your report
- Proofread and check for mistakes
Make sure that every piece of information you have supplied is pertinent. Remember to double-check your grammar, spelling, tenses, and the person you are writing in. A final inspection against any structural criteria is also important. You have appropriately and completely referenced for an academic work. Check to make sure you haven’t unintentionally, purposefully, or both duplicated something without giving credit.
Any business professional’s toolkit must include business reports. Therefore, how can you create a thorough business report? You must first confirm that you are familiar with the responses to the following three questions.
Every company report starts with an issue that needs to be fixed. This could be something straightforward, like figuring out a better way to organise procuring office supplies, or it could be a more challenging issue, like putting in place a brand-new, multimillion-dollar computer system.
You must therefore compile the data you intend to include in your report. How do you do this? If you’ve never conducted in-depth research before, it can be quite a daunting task, so discovering the most efficient techniques is a real plus.

Report Writing Format, Template, Topics and Examples | Newspaper and Magazine Report Writing
November 11, 2021 by Prasanna
Report Writing Format 2021: What is a Report? Why is Report Writing Important? A report is the formal documentation of an event, a person, or another entity. Essentially, it provides details, insights and facts that are organised in the form of a document. Report writing is the process of writing such a report.

Really, when people talk about “reports,” they’re usually referring to official documents outlining the facts of a topic, typically written by an expert on the subject or someone assigned to investigate it. There are different types of reports, explained in the next section, but they mostly fit this description.
What kind of information is shared in reports? Although all facts are welcome, reports, in particular, tend to feature these types of content:
- Details of an event or situation
- The consequences or ongoing effect of an event or situation
- Evaluation of statistical data or analytics
- Interpretations from the information in the report
- Predictions or recommendations based on the information in the report
- How the information relates to other events or reports
Reports are closely related to essay writing , although there are some clear distinctions. While both rely on facts, essays add the personal opinions and arguments of the authors. Reports typically stick only to the facts, although they may include some of the author’s interpretation of these facts, most likely in the conclusion.
Moreover, reports are heavily organized, commonly with tables of contents and copious headings and subheadings. This makes it easier for readers to scan reports for the information they’re looking for. Essays, on the other hand, are meant to be read start to finish, not browsed for specific insights.
Types of reports
There are a few different types of reports, depending on the purpose and to whom you present your report. Here’s a quick list of the common types of reports:
- Academic report: Tests a student’s comprehension of the subject matter, such as book reports, reports on historical events, and biographies
- Business reports: Identifies information useful in business strategy, such as marketing reports, internal memos, SWOT analysis, and feasibility reports
- Scientific reports: Shares research findings, such as research papers and case studies, typically in science journals
Reports can be further divided into categories based on how they are written. For example, a report could be formal or informal, short or long, and internal or external. In business, a vertical report shares information with people on different levels of the hierarchy (i.e., people who work above you and below you), while a lateral report is for people on the author’s same level, but in different departments.
There are as many types of reports as there are writing styles, but in this guide, we focus on academic reports, which tend to be formal and informational.

What is the structure of a report?
The structure of a report depends on the type of report and the requirements of the assignment. While reports can use their own unique structure, most follow this basic template:
- Executive summary: Just like an abstract in an academic paper, an executive summary is a standalone section that summarizes the findings in your report so readers know what to expect. These are mostly for official reports and less so for school reports.
- Introduction: Setting up the body of the report, your introduction explains the overall topic that you’re about to discuss, with your thesis statement and any need-to-know background information before you get into your own findings.
- Body: The body of the report explains all your major discoveries, broken up into headings and subheadings. The body makes up the majority of the entire report; whereas the introduction and conclusion are just a few paragraphs each, the body can go on for pages.
- Conclusion: The conclusion is where you bring together all the information in your report and come to a definitive interpretation or judgment. This is usually where the author inputs their own personal opinions or inferences.
If you’re familiar with how to write a research paper , you’ll notice that report writing follows the same introduction-body-conclusion structure, sometimes adding an executive summary. Reports usually have their own additional requirements as well, such as title pages and tables of content, which we explain in the next section.
What should be included in a report?
There are no firm requirements for what’s included in a report. Every school, company, laboratory, task manager, and teacher can make their own format, depending on their unique needs. In general, though, be on the lookout for these particular requirements—they tend to crop up a lot:
- Title page: Official reports often use a title page to keep things organized; if a person has to read multiple reports, title pages make them easier to keep track of.
- Table of contents: Just like in books, the table of contents helps readers go directly to the section they’re interested in, allowing for faster browsing.
- Page numbering: A common courtesy if you’re writing a longer report, page numbering makes sure the pages are in order in the case of mix-ups or misprints.
- Headings and subheadings: Reports are typically broken up into sections, divided by headings and subheadings, to facilitate browsing and scanning.
- Citations: If you’re citing information from another source, the citations guidelines tell you the recommended format.
- Works cited page: A bibliography at the end of the report lists credits and the legal information for the other sources you got information from.
As always, refer to the assignment for the specific guidelines on each of these. The people who read the report should tell you which style guides or formatting they require.
How to write a report in 7 steps
Now let’s get into the specifics of how to write a report. Follow the seven steps on report writing below to take you from an idea to a completed paper.
1 Choose a topic based on the assignment
Before you start writing, you need to pick the topic of your report. Often, the topic is assigned for you, as with most business reports, or predetermined by the nature of your work, as with scientific reports. If that’s the case, you can ignore this step and move on.
If you’re in charge of choosing your own topic, as with a lot of academic reports, then this is one of the most important steps in the whole writing process. Try to pick a topic that fits these two criteria:
- There’s adequate information: Choose a topic that’s not too general but not too specific, with enough information to fill your report without padding, but not too much that you can’t cover everything.
- It’s something you’re interested in: Although this isn’t a strict requirement, it does help the quality of a report if you’re engaged by the subject matter.
Of course, don’t forget the instructions of the assignment, including length, so keep those in the back of your head when deciding.
2 Conduct research
With business and scientific reports, the research is usually your own or provided by the company—although there’s still plenty of digging for external sources in both.
For academic papers, you’re largely on your own for research, unless you’re required to use class materials. That’s one of the reasons why choosing the right topic is so crucial; you won’t go far if the topic you picked doesn’t have enough available research.
The key is to search only for reputable sources: official documents, other reports, research papers, case studies, books from respected authors, etc. Feel free to use research cited in other similar reports. You can often find a lot of information online through search engines, but a quick trip to the library can also help in a pinch.
3 Write a thesis statement
Before you go any further, write a thesis statement to help you conceptualize the main theme of your report. Just like the topic sentence of a paragraph, the thesis statement summarizes the main point of your writing, in this case, the report.
Once you’ve collected enough research, you should notice some trends and patterns in the information. If these patterns all infer or lead up to a bigger, overarching point, that’s your thesis statement.
For example, if you were writing a report on the wages of fast-food employees, your thesis might be something like, “Although wages used to be commensurate with living expenses, after years of stagnation they are no longer adequate.” From there, the rest of your report will elaborate on that thesis, with ample evidence and supporting arguments.
It’s good to include your thesis statement in both the executive summary and introduction of your report, but you still want to figure it out early so you know which direction to go when you work on your outline next.
4 Prepare an outline
Writing an outline is recommended for all kinds of writing, but it’s especially useful for reports given their emphasis on organization. Because reports are often separated by headings and subheadings, a solid outline makes sure you stay on track while writing without missing anything.
Really, you should start thinking about your outline during the research phase, when you start to notice patterns and trends. If you’re stuck, try making a list of all the key points, details, and evidence you want to mention. See if you can fit them into general and specific categories, which you can turn into headings and subheadings respectively.
5 Write a rough draft
Actually writing the rough draft , or first draft, is usually the most time-consuming step. Here’s where you take all the information from your research and put it into words. To avoid getting overwhelmed, simply follow your outline step by step to make sure you don’t accidentally leave out anything.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes; that’s the number one rule for writing a rough draft. Expecting your first draft to be perfect adds a lot of pressure. Instead, write in a natural and relaxed way, and worry about the specific details like word choice and correcting mistakes later. That’s what the last two steps are for, anyway.
6 Revise and edit your report
Once your rough draft is finished, it’s time to go back and start fixing the mistakes you ignored the first time around. (Before you dive right back in, though, it helps to sleep on it to start editing fresh, or at least take a small break to unwind from writing the rough draft.)
We recommend first rereading your report for any major issues, such as cutting or moving around entire sentences and paragraphs. Sometimes you’ll find your data doesn’t line up, or that you misinterpreted a key piece of evidence. This is the right time to fix the “big picture” mistakes and rewrite any longer sections as needed.
If you’re unfamiliar with what to look for when editing, you can read our previous guide with some more advanced self-editing tips .
7 Proofread and check for mistakes
Last, it pays to go over your report one final time, just to optimize your wording and check for grammatical or spelling mistakes. In the previous step you checked for “big picture” mistakes, but here you’re looking for specific, even nitpicky problems.
A writing assistant like Grammarly flags those issues for you. Grammarly’s free version points out any spelling and grammatical mistakes while you write, with suggestions to improve your writing that you can apply with just one click. The Premium version offers even more advanced features, such as tone adjustments and word choice recommendations for taking your writing to the next level.

Write a report in 100-125 words on how the ban is being ignored and what damage the indiscriminate use of plastic bags in causing to the environment. (Comptt. Delhi 2010) Answer:
Environment Unfriendly Polybags By: Amarjeet, Staff Reporter The National Herald
In the year 2002 the government had banned the production and use of plastic bags in our country. But unfortunately, these are now being widely used again everywhere. Not only are we using a huge number of polybags daily but we are also discarding them in our drains uncaring about the fact that they will block the flow of drain water. Polybags are also a threat to our environment. They cause pollution, kill wildlife and are responsible for using up the natural resources of the earth. They are one of the main factors that litter the landscape. If burnt, they will infuse the surrounding air with toxic fumes.
The main problem of plastic bags is that they are non-biodegradable. The decomposition of plastic takes around a thousand years, so with the plastic rubbish produced each day it is likely that this problem will never be solved. While the government works out ways to lessen the impact of polybags on the environment each one of us too should shoulder some responsibility for this problem that ultimately harms us all.

The explosion took place at about 6.10 pm near a three-wheeled vehicle which got ripped apart. Within seconds the entire area was strewn with glass and splattered with blood. Amidst utter fear, chaos and confusion people were seen running wildly, some in search of their dear ones and others to ensure their own safety.
I stood they are dumbfounded, almost paralysed with fear as my parents helped an old couple who had sustained severe injuries in the blast. Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the horrific sights that then met my eyes. I am convinced that these nightmarish sights are there to stay in my memory for a lifetime.

The meagre belongings of daily wagers and labourers living in this slum were turned to ashes. The pathetic sight of wailing children and women was heartrending. Since the fire broke out at around 7.30 pm, most of the womenfolk were cooking their evening meals. So many slum dwellers had to go hungry that night as the fire brigades took almost four hours to douse the flames and control the fire. People from our colony came forward to help these distressed people. We offered packed food and water to them. The miserable plight of these people as their abodes turned to ashes will continue to haunt the residents of our locality for a long time.

Being an N.C.C cadet I got the privilege of attending the Republic Day Parade in Delhi. I was awestruck by its sheer grandeur and magnificence. The parade showcases not only India’s defence capability but also gives us a unique glimpse of our cultural and social heritage.
The Republic Day Parade which is held in the capital city, New Delhi starts from the Rashtrapati Bhavan, along Rajpath, past India Gate. Before its commencement, the Prime Minister lays a floral wreath at the’ Amar Jawan Jyoti, a memorial to the soldiers who laid down their lives during various wars. The President then unfurls the National flag after which the different regiments of our armed forces march past with their bands in all their fineries saluting their commander-in-chief, the President of India.
Another highlight of the parade were the tableaus of different states that depicted India’s culture and diversity. Each Indian state and Union Territory is represented by a float that presents an aspect of its culture and is a visual treat. Watching the Republic Day celebrations was the most enjoyable experience and it was my good fortune to have got this opportunity to watch the parade from such close quarters, an experience that I will not be able to forget. The celebrations came to an end and everyone arose for the National Anthem following which the important dignitaries left Rajpath.

Writing an article for your school newspaper can be exciting and rewarding, especially once you see your name in print! If you don't already belong to your school newspaper, you may need to try out or talk to the editor about submitting some sample pieces. To write an article, you'll need to decide which type of article you'd like to write, check on submission guidelines, research your topic, interview sources, and write it in the proper newspaper format.
Joining the Team and Writing Different Types of Articles
- Check to see if there are deadlines for turning in mock articles, what the editor is looking for in a new staff member, and if there are any meetings you can attend to get more information.
- If you've been on staff for a while, you may have the freedom to choose your own article topics. But until you know your position, it's always a good idea to ask for assignments.
- Feature stories are the largest articles in a newspaper, and they often go beyond simple facts to the reasons behind something, like why an event happened and what it means for students moving forward.
- An example of a feature story would be an article about a new scholarship being offered in your state. How it works, who is eligible, and facts about the work that went into making the scholarship program a reality would make a compelling story.
- News articles are generally more straight-forward than feature stories or opinion articles. They convey relevant information in an unbiased way.
- For example, you could write an editorial about school rules, events or groups on campus, sports, programs, or teaching methods.
- If you want to be a regular columnist for your school newspaper, present a plan to your editor for a series of articles that you'd like to work on. For example, you could propose a 4-week series about starting a club or practicing self-care.
- For example, you could write an article called “Top 10 Tips to Manage Stress,” “How to Develop Good Study Habits,” or “How to Get in Shape before Tryouts.”
- For example, if you review a new movie that came out, you could write about who would most enjoy the film. Perhaps it would be great for someone who likes action movies but not as enjoyable for someone who prefers comedies.
Researching, Interviewing, and Fact Gathering
- Talk to your editor, production manager, or faculty advisor for more information.
- Who? Find out who was involved, whether that would be students, administrators, or other people in your community.
- What? Write down exactly what it is that you are writing about. Is it an event, a person, or an idea? Be as specific as possible.
- Where? Identify where the event took place. Is this a subject that is particular to your school or community, or is it a national subject?
- When? Make note of important dates and times.
- Why? Determine the reasons behind the subject. Was there a catalyst?
- How? Connect the rest of your information together to determine how an event or subject came together.
- When contacting a person for an interview, let them know who you are and what topic you're writing about, and give them an estimate of how much of their time you'll need.
- When you finish an interview, take 10 minutes to write down additional notes right away. They'll be fresh in your mind and you'll be less likely to forget important details.
- Ask if you have someone's permission to use their name and words in your article, and write down their quote verbatim. You can use anonymous sources, but quotes are more compelling when they can be traced back to a specific individual.
- Fact-checking makes you a more trustworthy writer and ensures that you're taking the time to communicate as truthfully as you can about any particular subject.
- Some reporters dictate notes to themselves or write out daily logs about their interviews and research. Figure out what works for you and your lifestyle, and then stick to it.
Writing the Article
- A lot of times, readers will decide if they want to continue reading an article based off of the first sentence or two.
- Sometimes you'll come up with a great headline before you even write the article, but most often you won't know exactly what you're presenting until after you've written it. Try waiting until after you've written your article to come up with the headline, and then make sure it fits in with the given topic.
- People who want to know more about the topic will continue reading past those first 2 paragraphs, but people who just wanted the basic information will get their answers without having to search through the entire article.
- For example, instead of saying, “Principal Miller comes from rainy Washington state and had been teaching before becoming a principal for 15 years,” you could say something like, “Principal Miller previously lived in Washington, and she has over 15 years of experience in the educational system."
- Always ask for permission to quote someone when you're interviewing them.
- Being able to proofread your own work is an essential part of being a successful member of the newspaper staff, and the more you work at it, the better you'll get.
- Be careful when writing to avoid plagiarizing other sources. It's okay to use information from others, but make sure to reword it in your own way so it's unique and to cite sources when needed. ⧼thumbs_response⧽ Helpful 0 Not Helpful 0
- If you're having trouble coming up with an idea for an article, ask for an assignment from the editor. ⧼thumbs_response⧽ Helpful 0 Not Helpful 0
