JOUR 2229 Introduction to Magazine Writing (Fall: 3 )
What does it take to make a magazine? This course will introduce students to the creative process of magazine publishing. Students will learn what distinguishes lifestyle magazines from news, and how to pitch a story. They'll write and edit short front-of-book features, develop elements in themed issue packages, and work on story development for features, profiles, and food and culture reviews. The class will provide instruction on blogging, and the rigors of research and fact-checking. Upon conclusion, students will be well prepared for an internship or entry-level position at a magazine.
