How to be a journalist without a press badge
How to become a journalist and not have to worry about having to wear a press pass.
I was a reporter for the Detroit News from 1993 to 2007, and in 2007 I left the city to start a blog called Detroit Free Press, where I write about politics, business, sports, and the arts.
Today, I’m the managing editor of Detroit Free, and my writing is now widely syndicated and is featured in outlets across the country, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and others.
It’s a challenging assignment, but it’s also rewarding, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to work with so many people who are passionate about their craft.
Here are three tips for becoming a journalist: 1.
You don’t have to own a press card to work in Detroit.
While it may seem counterintuitive, it’s actually a great thing to do.
I’ve written about this before.
It can be incredibly liberating to be able to write on a public platform, where everyone is able to read what you’re writing.
In Detroit, I often have the privilege of working with local journalists who can’t afford to have their work published in the paper.
That’s a huge benefit to the city.
There’s so much happening in Detroit right now that is affecting the way we think about the city, and that’s the kind of thing you have to be ready for when you start out.
You can do anything you want, in Detroit!
If you’re a Detroit native and don’t feel like making a move, the city is a great place to live.
You’ll have a lot of opportunities to do things that you’d never be able do anywhere else.
And there are lots of other opportunities, too, including some you’ll never think about.
I have a special love for downtown Detroit.
It has everything you’d want in a city, including great restaurants and bars, a large and diverse population, a strong art scene, and a vibrant downtown.
You also have a vibrant arts scene, with arts festivals and other events, which makes it a perfect place to start.
You get paid!
I was paid less than $50 per hour when I was an independent writer in Detroit, so I’m glad I could take advantage of the opportunity.
I also learned a lot from my friends in journalism, and it’s great to be paid by your readers for doing what you love.
I hope that by working with Detroit Free and the Free Press I’ve given you a better understanding of what it takes to be an independent reporter, and have more fun doing it than I did when I went into journalism school.
