ASAP was the AP's younger audience service, aimed at attracting the 18-to-34-year-old demographic group to AP's members and subscribers. ASAP content includes words, pictures, sounds, moving images, blogs and interactive features. It was packaged for every format and designed to appeal to the next generation of news consumers. Writing for ASAP allowed me to do some "outside the box" writing I didn't often get a chance to do for the main wire. Since it shut down, I have continued writing for AP's travel and food departments. Here is a a selection of some of my ASAP pieces plus blogs and other offbeat AP writing.
