An elaboration of my topic proposal…
I plan to write a journalistic feature article. It’s the most comfortable thing for me to do and it makes the most sense in this context. I think a photo essay with captions would also work. A feature article would elaborate the backgrounds behind each memorial or the motives behind it, and photo essays could convey the sights and feelings much easier than gargantuan articles. (short and sweet captions)
Publications that could fit this project include New Jersey Monthly, Go World Travel Magazine, or even Weird NJ.
I have never covered this topic before, but I have passed by so many of them during my life. I’d have to use my journalistic skills to track down relevant people to interview.
