Five Tips for Young Journalists

The Year of the Gadfly tells the story of Iris Dupont, a teenage reporter who communes with the ghost of Edward R. Murrow, and Jonah Kaplan, a failed microbiologist-turned-biology teacher who is haunted by the ghosts of his past. Jennifer Miller, author of The Year of the Gadfly, has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Marie Claire, Allure, and The Daily Beast, so she clearly knows a little something about journalism.

Drawing from the experience of creating Iris, the young journalist of The Year of the Gadfly, and her own journalistic chops, Jennifer Miller has generously created a list of five tips for those of you whose writing leans toward reporting.
