Tasks for Week 9

We only have one class session in Week 9. On Tuesday (Oct. 18), we will have an editorial meeting. Be ready to discuss all remaining stories and pitches. There is no class on Thursday (Oct. 20) due to VCU Fall Reading Days.

Please don’t forget that you need to live tweet at least one presidential debate. The last chance for that is this Wednesday (Oct. 19) with the third and final debate.
