Fall 2022 Detailed Description

Good stories, drama and paradox, and great writing and reporting – these are what English 722 is all about. In 621 you learned the basic skills needed to write news stories. In this advanced writing class, you’ll build on those skills to become nonfiction storytellers. You’ll polish your interviewing and reporting techniques and add depth, detail and style to your writing. You’ll write thorough and interesting stories that will make readers laugh and cry and yell and think about what goes on around them in new ways.
