  • COMM 4610 - Magazine Writing
    This course seeks to refine students’ journalistic writing skills in the genre of magazine feature writing and sub-genres and will follow the premise that good magazine writers are storytellers as much as they are purveyors of facts. Students will explore creative writing techniques unique to magazine nonfiction and will hone their writing, editing, and research skills in preparation for careers in the magazine industry. The goal is to develop students’ abilities to analyze issues, brainstorm ideas, and write and edit quality stories for magazine publications.
