Great Student Online Journalism

Some of the best online journalism is being produced by students — a good sign that despite our industry’s struggles, the future remains bright. Each spring the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism publishes a weekly online magazine about life in New York City, called NYC24 — you can check out the past two years’ editions and the compelling storytelling makes it well worth it.

New York University students, meanwhile, have just published ReadMe, a new online collection of articles about online journalism, including interviews with some practitioners. Here you can read about everything from SportsJones.com to Christina Valhouli’s infamous Salon bikini wax article, best known for the lead, “I am lying flat on my back naked, holding my butt and legs in the air while a middle-aged Brazilian woman peers at my crotch.”
