Front Of The Book
Course Number: JOUR-GA 1231.005
Day & Time: Monday, 6:20pm-10:00pm
Instructor: Nick Marino
Course description: The front-of-book is the fast-paced, voice-driven section every magazine uses to establish its personality and reel in readers. It’s a lively mix of topics and storyforms that, when done right, hangs together like a magazine unto itself. By discussing both writing and editing for the front-of-book, this class will give students a 360-degree perspective on assigning, pacing, crafting and polishing the opening pages of any magazine.
