N and I have been away for a while due to our jobs, but one thing is for certain…Neither of our editors know about us. So, we’re still venting our (and your) frustrations if you send them to us. 
Last time I checked, at least one of our editors follows this frustrated ball of fur on Twitter. But, he’s never going to know. 
The election is very close…So, what’s frustrating you in your newsrooms?

 misterlavine said: It’s unfortunate because I’m studying at a community college with no student publication. When I transfer, though, I can’t wait to get involved.

That is unfortunate, but if you decide not to transfer maybe you should look into starting one with a journalism or English professor as an advisor. Building a publication from the ground up… talk about a learning experience and a resume builder!

So, I love how people think that you just magically wrote better than normal and made it to the front page. When in reality, our editors tell us it has to be front page worthy. At least that’s how it works here.

You’re right, anon. I’m frequently told “Write it for page 1” or “It’s an inside story, so don’t spend a lot of time on it.” I also appreciate being told something like “Good job for getting a story on the front page! And you’re so young, too!” —N

"While covering a story, was asked if I wrote for the school paper."
"I was at a middle school."
Don’t feel bad. I approached a state house candidate for an interview at a forum. He must have noticed my reporter’s notebook in hand because he said, “You can’t be a reporter. You’re 15 years old!”
