In an age when consumers actively seek multiple platforms and sources for vital information, strong writing skills have never been so important. This course develops digital journalists’ writing abilities by focusing on: organizing complex information, layer­ing primary and secondary sources, developing leads that hook, structuring narrative and teasing out tension, and developing a credible voice. Students will also advance their understanding of grammar and editing and refine their creative thinking and language skills.
