Click the link above to view my feature article “Two Floors of History” as a mock magazine article spread for my online portfolio.
Context: In my Research in Professional and Critical Writing course, I had to write a feature article on a subculture of my own choosing. I chose to research historians, historical re-enactors, and historical preservationists. I toured both houses, researched the time period, interviewed docents, wrote the article, and then I turned this feature article in to a five-page magazine spread. To achieve the elegant design you can view in a PDF, I added headings, graphics and photos to shape the essay in to a scannable document. Then I eliminated unnecessary text, changed the font, size, color, and layout so that it resembled a magazine spread for a historical or local magazine.
