The Auburn Trail

My magazine features six stories I wrote for two different clients, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) and Auburn Family. Auburn Family is a blog for prospective students and parents. ACES serves as an outreach organization for Alabama A&M and Auburn University land-grant institutions. I wrote for their daily publication, “Extension Daily.” The magazine was created and styled in Adobe InDesign.

The story content was formatted into different layouts to demonstrate design variety and give each story character. Through these stories I gained experience writing for editors, interviewing sources and practice using Wordpress and Ning. Although the story topics were on different ends of the spectrum it was fun to write about a variety of subjects. You can find my published work on family.auburn.edu and news.aces.edu.
