Well, my internship at the Addison Independent has come to end. Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe that I started working at the paper more than ten weeks ago. I am so thankful to have worked at the Addy Indy alongside some fantastic co-works who taught me so much. Getting to cover and meet folks in the 23 towns of Addison County was an unforgettable experience. Here are my final articles!
“International Filmmakers Give Their Unique Take on Cinema” – The Addison Independent
This may have been my favorite article from my time at the paper. I got to speak with several international filmmakers who will have their work screened at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival! I spoke with them about their films, their inspirations, and their creative processes. This was the cover story for the paper’s Arts & Leisure supplement. I hope you’ll check it out!
“Makeshift Gun Ranges Draw Fire; Call For Safe Shooting Spaces Grows” – The Addison Independent
Over the summer I covered several gun-related stories throughout Addison County. It’s weird, it wasn’t an issue I planned to cover but it just sort of became my beat. This article details the unsafe shooting spaces and informal gun ranges throughout many towns in Addison County. I found it to be a fascinating subject, since Vermont is such a pro-gun state. I wish I could have stayed at the paper longer and explored the issue more.
“Demo derby brings flips, fire, and fun” – The Addison Independent
Covering an Addison County tradition: demo derby! It was as super fun event where people fix-up old cars and smash them into one another. Here’s my play-by-play of the event.
“Fairgoers Find a World of Fun at Field Days” – The Addison Independent
A few vignettes from the Addison County Fair & Field Days.
