This course explores the fast-changing world of pop-music journalism. We will explore approaches to writing concert and album reviews, interviewing artists, covering music news for the web (especially on Twitter and Facebook, as well as blogs) and tracking trends. There will be guest speakers and workshops, along with weekly writing assignments (including a longer final project). For students with and without prior journalism studies or experience.
