In this course we will study and practice traditional forms of news writing while while responding to the pressures pushing journalism toward new forms. We will practice the objective style, the inverted pyramid, narrative, hybrid and alternative forms, and new media forms that bring readers into dialogue with writers and their stories. We will cover the news, conduct interviews, produce profiles, write arts reviews, discuss the legal and ethical obligations of the profession. As much as possible, we will follow the rituals of the job, completing weekly assignments that target the audience of a particular publication. Sleeves will be rolled up; deadlines will be met; publication will be our goal. (2008-2011)
