Poets and Novelists take the news for a day

An Israeli newspaper, Hebrew language Israeli daily, gave all its journalists a day off and assigned the news to Israeli poets and novelists for a day.

For this edition of the paper, nearly all the rules taught in journalism school were thrown out the window. Writers used the first person and showed up in nearly every photograph alongside their interview subjects

Of course they did. For the stock market summary author Avri Herling wrote:

“Everything’s okay. Everything’s like usual. Yesterday trading ended. Everything’s okay. The economists went to their homes, the laundry is drying on the lines, dinners are waiting in place…”

Very fun. I volunteer for the next round.
