Virtual handout on reporting/writing profiles

Hey all, Jacqui sent an edited version of a presentation on profiles that she gave at the Nieman Narrative conference in 2003.

For those who missed our video session with her today, I'll blog on it Tuesday. But the doc she sent along covers a chunk of what she talked about today.

  1. It was a great bagger.

    I've been thinking about how she mentioned profiling people on our beats in a way that goes beyond the superficial resume-type story.

    It's hard to write a true profile of someone because as a reporter know, deep down, that most people don't see themselves the way others see them. I am thinking of two lines in "To a Louse" by Robert Burns: "O wad some Power the giftie gie us/To see oursels as ithers see us."
