Feature Writing

Use your words: learn to captivate and enthrall readers.

Dissect great works of journalism for story, character, dialogue, scenes, structure, transitions, verb tense, point of view, style and impact. The goal is to create memorable narrative non-fiction stories that hold a reader’s attention to the last word. We’ll operate like a newsroom to maintain a class online publication with students working to write, edit and publish stories, blog on a topic, find and post art and photos, track traffic and analytics, and market the site by engaging in social media.
