Professional Writing Skills: Journalism

Course Code

WRIT 201

Academic Year


WRIT 201 carries on the work begun in WRIT 101. Since Journalism students study virtually all other forms of writing in their core courses, this class will be devoted to reading, writing, and editing creative writing. Students will participate in writing workshops, sharing their imaginative work with the other members of the class and the teacher, receiving feedback on both content and style, and then revising. Some classes will be devoted to matters of style and grammar. Since the ability to write well is based to some degree on understanding the mechanics of good writing in others, students will study and analyze sample texts.
