Writing Intensive Course Information

This capstone course takes an "intra-disciplinary" approach to reporting, writing, and revising. The course builds on all previous reporting and writing courses students have taken, including Intermediate Writing. Our attention will focus on magazine-style, literary journalism that is based on strong, accurate, and insightful reporting. Revision is a critical component. The aim in this course is to publish what students write. Additional ways this course uses writing: We read great non-fiction and journalism. We read aloud great fiction in class. We create a workshop atmosphere that lasts not only throughout the semester but will be strong enough to last for decades within the cohort that is created. Acceptable interpretation "Intellectual autobiography: 300 words. Read aloud in class. Personal essay. 800 to 1,000 words. Revised at least twice: 1,600 words. Profile. 1,500 to 1,750 words. Revised at least twice: 3,000 words. Long form thematic feature. 2,000 to 2,500 words. Revised twice: 5,000 words. Radio commentary: 250 to 300 words. Revised at least twice: 600 words.

Writing Intensive Teaching

Instructor provided feedback
Peer review
 
 
Since these journalism students are writing about social issues that invariably have more than one acceptable interpretation, this question is not directly relevant. Successful writing for this class depends on critical thinking, powers of persuasion, comprehension of audience, fairness and accuracy.
Autobiography written in first week of class. Essay in first month. Profile within first 8 weeks.Commentary completed within 12 weeks. Long form completed by end of semester
