Writing Intensive Course Information

This class is focused on good writing. It will help students polish their writing skills developed in earlier journalism classes but expand the techniques used for nonfiction writing. Students are expected to produce publishable magazine articles and to have them accepted for publication. In an effort to learn to be better writers, students will critically analyze articles by published authors as well as classmates.

Writing Intensive Assignments

Words
All Assignments
Students must complete a minimum of three stories or articles for the class. They write Vox department stories on assignment (writing for the weekly city magazine produced by the Journalism School). These will be written after students pitch well-developed story ideas, complete with initial reporting, and receive feedback from their peers and the professor?s approval. For purposes here, the word count includes at least one revision of the Vox package, the personal essay, and the Feature Story, but students revise more than once--the number of revisions after the first one depends on how they do with each revision, so it is not possible to calculate ALL revision word counts after the first one. Vox package: 500-750 words Personal essay: 350-500 words Feature Story: 1500-2500 words Additional ways this course uses writing: Students complete shorter assignments, both inside and outside the classroom that link to specific writing techniques, such as voice and description.

Writing Intensive Teaching

Instructor provided feedback
Peer review
 
 
All journalistic writing demands that writers think through the many questions and open-ended problematic situations that are part of any assignment and become able write coherent, concise stories without compromising their complexities.
Students are usually working on one to two assignments throughout the semester, with a larger project early on as well as at the end
