Cm320 Literary Journalism 4 credits
Called creative nonfiction and "literature on deadline," this course takes off where beat reporting and "everyday journalism" ends. Students will use the techniques and principles of journalism—objectivity, accuracy, research, interviewing-and combine them with creative writing techniques—first-person writing, subjective reporting, reconstructing dialogue—to create stories that immerse the writer and the reader deep into a subject. What students will write is true, but the prose will flow like a short story.
