To: All Columnists
From: HPFT Staff

Now that you have claimed three (3) publishers, it's time to write a profile for each one! Each staff profile must be between 250-750 words long, be accompanied by a picspam, and contain the facts you matched with that staff member.

It just so happens that we are also presently evaluating the quality of work being performed at each paper and will be reviewing each submission accordingly. Specifically, we'll be scrutinizing them for:

  • Inclusion of The Matched Facts;
  • Writing Mechanics and;
  • Overall Quality & Creativity

As usual, for each Staff Profile completed, your paper will receive points.The four (4) best Staff Profiles as judged by the above criteria will receive extra points. Make sure to make the most of this opportunity for yourselves and your papers!

As always, you're on a deadline...ALL STAFF PROFILES (WITH ACCOMPANYING PICSPAMS) ARE DUE NO LATER THAN END OF DAY 17 AUGUST 2018.

Are we allowed to interview our staffers to get enough information for their profiles?

No. You should use the facts and any other information you can find about them on-site to flesh out the articles. We aren't looking for something super personal and biographical...describing how many stories they have written or their favorite genre or focusing on and elaborating on one little fact is fine.

The reasons are 1) not all staff are available right now to give you a timely response, so it's not fair if some houses can get an interview and some can't 2) you only have to write 250 words 3) we don't want to do the writing for you. :P

So just to clarify, the staff profiles don't require accompanying gifs? Just picspams?

Are the staff profiles meant to be written as if the staff are working for the newspaper, or as if we're just including profiles on well-known people in the paper?
