A New Angle

For this week’s assignment in the Loyalist College’s public relations program, we are to find an article that interest us and develop a new angle for the same topic. I always find Valentine’s Day articles interesting because, I am always looking at new ways to celebrate it, without all the cheese and corn.

For this assignment I decided to develop a new angle for an online article published on thestar.com under the “world” category. The article titled “U.S. inmate makes Valentine’s escape, caught trying to meet girlfriend” is pretty self-explanatory.

There is a multitude of angles that could be taken regarding the topic of Valentine’s Day, including date and tourism suggestions, best and worst gifts received and relationship advice from experts, to list a few.

One unique angle begins with a Q&A asking the public “to what extent would you go to, to be with your significant other on Valentine’s Day?” With the results of the Q&A, I would compile multiple far-fetch, creative plots into a strategically crafted article. Another idea is to take on a historical and educational angle depicting the history behind Valentine’s Day.
