Writing for Purpose

Today we looked at Stories in Trashy magazines as opposed to Upmarket magazines and compared them with Grace Macaskill.

trashy magazines

quirky

shock factor

real-life

pictures

first-person

informal

crime

gossip

celebrity culture

 

Upmarket magazines

opinion pieces (such as blogs etc)

Columnists

real-life

Credible sources

Glamour

Interviews

Formal

Gossip

Celebrity culture

 

They both look at trends, for instance, Katie Price, the sun would show an article on her in a trashy manner. Where as The Guardian would portray this in a more upmarket way but with the same treatment, content etc.
