Instructor: Ted Conover

Portfolio Workshop has evolved from the Portfolio honors program into a key component of the Literary Reportage concentration. Its goal is to teach students the kind of in-depth research and writing required to create a sophisticated, cohesive body of work. Building a body of work takes time and a willingness to experiment with many different forms, among them blogging, short features, profiles, reviews, and long articles—all around one’s main LitRep project. Our seminar meetings will involve group critique as well as experimentation with voice and writerly style, including the many variations of the first person.
