Fall 2021 Course Details:
What do great editors do? Assigning stories, editing sentences, posting stories online, managing the flow of breaking news Tweets, uploading video – these days editors do all this and more. No matter what the task, they work to ensure that the news is reported accurately, clearly and completely. They also help reporters do their best work.
This course aims to get you to think like such an editor. In particular, you’ll work to develop the two types of vision good editors share: the ability to see what’s there in a story and the ability to envision what’s not there but could be. Great editors make good writing better. These editors also make sure newspapers and news sites give readers the information they need and want, and stories and graphics that help readers make sense of the world around them.
