Write your own 200-300 word obituary. Use the information in the textbook and look at various obituaries, even those in your local newspaper or online, to help you get started. You can fictionalize the obituary, but make sure the content is appropriate to this genre of journalism. Consider including a photo of yourself. Don’t forget to include a headline. Use the Wire Service Style for writing located in Appendix 2, page 500.
