BUS 305 - Business Writing -- Nonprofit Assignment: Articles/Popular Media


Articles about your nonprofit and the problem to be solved by the nonprofit are often topics for newspaper, magazine, blog posts and other online popular media.  Consider news articles written by reporters and editorials written by subject experts.
