Personal & Professional Style
Judith Crist & Helen Benedict
In the fall semester, this class is a three-point seminar open to Master of Science students.
The nature and demands of this course make it necessary to limit the class size.
It is offered to students who have mastered the basic mechanics and techniques of journalistic prose and are interested in developing and refining a personal literary style within a journalistic framework, appropriate to editorials, columns and reviews.
The emphasis is on form, structure and semantics for effective and original approaches to specialized writing in areas too long cliché-ridden. There are basic assignments and free-choice exercises, with concentration on self- and intra-group criticism. Not for the faint of heart.
Prospective students must complete the application (link below).
The forms asks for one sample of your best writing and a short a statement (no more than 350 words) of your interest in the course. The deadline to apply is Thursday, July 5, 10 a.m.
