Writing Intensive Course Information

The chief objective is to improve your writing by honing your critical-reading skills via longform narrative journalism and by writing, writing, writing. You will write short weekly assignments from themed exercises on the elements of narrative. You will immerse yourself in one semester-long project, with the goal of publishing the long piece and perhaps some of the shorter ones either in Vox or the Missourian.

Writing Intensive Assignments

Words
All Assignments
Students write weekly on various elements of narrative. These are to be short pieces, 700 words maximum. Students will also have occasional unannounced in-class assignments, and their big project is a longform narrative piece, due after following a consistent revision process on the last day of class in print and via email. We will occasionally workshop your short writing assignments in class. Because it is impossible to form exact word counts for a class like this in which students are writing constantly and the long narrative is ongoing throughout the semester.

Word counts are approximate.

Length of assignment:
5000

Total pages for all assignments:
First drafts:

Revisions:

Additional Writing: Every week students will write a reader response, of about 200 words, to an assigned text. We'll have a couple of guests via Skype throughout the term. Students will read guests' work deeply and analytically and their writing assignment will be tailored to their interaction with these guests.
