While the rows of glossy magazines on a newsstand grab our attention, magazine reporting and writing exists on a variety of platforms: Tweets, online posts, blogs and features, listicles, and multimedia, from slideshows to videos. Magazine publishing is a two-way street where the “book” needs to reach out to readers by marketing the piece on social media, encouraging feedback and sharing.
“Digital Magazine” will teach students how to practice magazine journalism on various platforms. The semester will include multimedia skills: conceptualizing, shooting and producing photos, slideshows and video. We’ll also focus on digital skills such as using social media for research and reporting as well as branding, and data visualization.
