MAKING A PLAN

This chapter will walk you through the different stages of planning an investigative story. From asking yourself questions and probing sources, to pitching a story and preparing a budget, each example in this chapter shows that planning is imperative for any investigative reporting project. It will also introduce how to recognise reliable sources and shape a story’s details into an interesting narrative through evidence-based reporting.
