. “The” is not included in this.● If you’ve done an email interview with someone, this should be indicated after the firstquote (i.e. “Queen’s is the greatest university out there,” Principal Woolf told the
lvia email). On that note, avoid email interviews as much as possible - make sure tocheck with the section editor or editor in chief beforehand to make sure it’s okay.● There’s no need to write a headline with your article. Section editors will write theheadline based on the layout space that’s available.● We always use conjunctions. “It’s”, not “it is”, “she’s”, not “she is” etc.● Always keep your interview notes and recordings, just in case.● When submitting articles to the Journal, preface the article as follows:By [First name] [Last name][Position (Contributor, Staff Writer, etc.)] Attribution:Try to always use the word “said” after a quote.

: “It’s too bad I’m not a FREC this year,” said he.The only exception to this rule is if the person’s title is extremely long, and writing it the aboveway looks awkward.For example: “The Sidewalk Sale always draws tons of people,” said Dana Jones, Frosh WeekCoordinator for the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society. Also, make you sure put attribution

This information is usually indicated in the article directly after the second mention of their name.For example:“I had a lot of fun,” Smith, ArtSci ‘14, said.
