Excerpts from a lecture by Dr. Lourdes D. Servito (Lecture delivered during the Division Journalism Workshop held at Pangasinan National High School, Lingayen, Pangasinan, Oct. 8-10, 2008) 1.    Use the “You” approach or the 3rd person.

Newly-painted concrete walls are still seen erected. But all wooden structures from the roofs to the ceilings and dividers are totally charred and pulverized into black and grey ashes and soot.” OR “The majestic municipal hall […] Read More →
