Students in the Feature Writing course were tasked with writing a feature story for Cross Timbers Magazine (2020).
The feature story I wrote was about a retired man residing in Glen Rose, Texas. He is a beekeeper and the story discusses how he came to find that hobby. For this story, I visited his house and interviewed him as he showed me around his beekeeping hives located in his backyard. This experience taught me how to comfortably conduct an interview and uncover interesting commentary from the interviewee.
