1. Brainstorm: Within your magazine's theme, brainstorm a topic that you have always wanted to learn more about, observe, or spend time researching.
2. Scan: Search headlines for relevant issues that are affecting people, trends that are taking place, or news stories that can be localized for your target audience.
3. Network: Take advantage of your resources. Find out who might know someone who would be a good source for a story.
Let's do a group brainstorm to see who we know in the community that might give us a good story, within our topic.
